The Mid-Michigan Chapter of Romance Writers of America (MMRWA) was formed in 1984 to serve Central and Western Michigan writers of romantic fiction. Its purpose is to promote excellence in romantic fiction, to help writers become published and establish careers in their writing field, and to provide continuing support for writers within the romance publishing industry.
MMRWA members take the opportunity to network, celebrate and commiserate with other writers at our monthly luncheon meetings, which rotate between Grand Rapids, Lansing, Kalamazoo, and Jackson/Marshall area on the third Saturday of the month. Guests may attend only two regular meetings without obligation to join the chapter and the national organization. Guests are welcome to join in discussions, but may not read their material, or use time for their own benefit, unless specifically asked to participate.
The members of this friendly, fun-loving, supportive group may not always take themselves seriously, but they take their writing very seriously and are dedicated to their writing careers. The chapter lists approximately 50 members, many of whom are published in book or magazine form in all areas of the romance genre: historical, contemporary, mystery/suspense, paranormal, and young adult. Check out our Member Milestones page to see what our members, both published and unpublished, have achieved so far.
MMRWA is a not-for-profit professional writers' association and an affiliated chapter of Romance Writers of America® (RWA® ). Chapter membership is contingent upon membership in RWA®. Annual MMRWA dues are $30, payable by December 1st.
Dues are prorated per joining during the chapter year.
