Hall of Fame
RWA's Hall of Fame recognizes authors whose works have been consistently recognized by their peers. Upon receipt of her/his third (formerly the fourth) RITA Award in the same category, an RWA member is inducted into the RWA Hall of Fame for that category.
RWA's RITA Award is the highest honor in romance publishing. RITA Award winners are determined by the toughest judges in existence—an author's fellow romance authors. For an author to win more than one RITA during her career is rare. For those outstanding authors who win multiple RITAs, RWA needed a special way to honor them, so we created the RWA Hall of Fame.
