About Us

San Antonio Romance Authors is a chapter of the Romance Writers of America® (RWA), a nonprofit trade association whose mission is to advance the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy. RWA works to support the efforts of its members to earn a living, to make a full-time career out of writing romance or a part-time one that generously supplements his/her main income.

  1. I have wanted to write a romance for all my life and now want to start. Can I start here? I have written and been published including my dissertation so please let me know. Merry Christmas!

  2. Hey Penny!

    I hope you had an amazing holiday.

    Please, come to one of our meetings and see what we’re about. We not only cover the craft of writing, but also marketing and the business of writing.

    We would love to have you join us.
