About Us

Welcome to the on-line home of Northwest Houston RWA®

NWHRWA is a non-profit organization of writers affiliated with Romance Writers of America®. Organized in 1980 and officially chartered in 1985, we are the original chapter of Romance Writers.

The mission of NWHRWA is to promote the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking, education and continued support.

Our chapter is a diverse group of writers.

We encourage all members through each stage of their writing career and we honor every member’s accomplishments. We offer networking relationships, the latest in market news, a nationally recognized writing contest, The Lone Star Writing Competition, our monthly newsletter, The Lone Star Galley, and our annual October Lone Star Writer’s Conference.

Whether you are taking those first hesitant steps toward publication or you’re a multi-published author, our educational programs and guest speakers will help you focus on your writing, your success, and your craft of writing romance.

Membership in Northwest Houston RWA® requires membership in the RWA® national organization. Prospective members may attend two meetings as a visitor before joining Northwest Houston Chapter.
