Welcome

Georgia Romance Writers, a chapter of ROMANCE WRITERS OF AMERICA®, is made up of approximately 200 serious, professional writers, nearly one-third of whom are multi-published in book length fiction.

A non-profit organization, we are dedicated to bringing quality women’s fiction to the market. Our mission is to promote high quality romance writing; to disseminate information regarding all aspects of the romance genre; and to give support and encouragement to members.

GRW was founded in 1982, held its first regional conference the same year, and has grown steadily ever since. But the heart and soul of GRW are its members who reach out to every writer who is dedicated to his or her craft.

This is the professional textbook description of GRW, but those who know it best will tell you that GRW is a “happening place” where the diligent succeed and that success is revered and celebrated by all.

We are friends and we care.

Come join us and share in that joy.

Program description:

Cranking up the pace of your manuscript could be as simple as gleaning and threshing excess words from your work, rearranging a paragraph here and there, or cutting out entire sections. Watch as international bestselling, RITA award winning author Deeanne Gist edits manuscript pages in real time from attendees’ anonymous submissions, then discuss and compare together to decide if the edits/omissions helped or hurt—and why.

DISCLAIMER: Not for the faint-hearted. Deeanne won’t be mean, but in order for the session to be effective, she will be thorough. Only submit your work if you are willing to have it shown on the screen during the workshop in front of everyone where Deeanne will be respectful, but completely honest, about what needs to be done (in her professional opinion). No names will be used. Release forms will be required for all who submit.
