Help Us Grow Our Community

join usRomance Writers of America is your community, the place where you find people who understand the drive to write HEAs, the desire to make sure that love wins — to have people that just get you. We want to grow the community of writers under the RWA umbrella, and we need your help.

RWA is running a membership drive through December 31, 2022. If you refer new (or former) members and they join RWA, they will have their $25 fee for new/former members waived. Plus, we are offering the following incentives for members who successfully recruit new/former members: 

  • 1-2 new/reinstating members: 10% off an RWA product purchase and a digital RWR toolkit – a collection of previous articles specifically geared toward your writing career.
  • 3 new/reinstating members: Free registration to RWA’s PR/Marketing Master Class (Oct. 8, 2022)
  • 4 new/reinstating members: Free registration to RWA’s Indie Author Weekend (Oct. 15-16, 2022)

We’re excited to announce that the member who brings in the most paying new/reinstating members will receive free registration to RWA2023 in Anaheim, California, plus 3 nights at the Anaheim Marriott! (A minimum of 7 new/reinstating members are required.)

How do you get credit for a new member referral? 

  1. Share this link with your friends, on your social media, and any where you know writers hang out:
  2. Tell your friends to put your name and member number in the referral fields on the membership application. And if you're a member of an RWA chapter, ask your referral to pick your chapter's name from the referral source drop-down list, so both you and your chapter get credit! The chapter recruiting the most members using the referral link will win a chapter grant of $500.
  3. The person you recruit must join and pay their membership dues in order for the referral to count.

That’s it! Already refer a member this month or in late August? You’re in the running for our incentives!

We hope you’ll share with your friends and colleagues how you’ve benefited from your RWA membership and help us bring new and exciting voices to the organization.
