A message from the President...


From the President


Hi and welcome to Colorado Romance Writer’s website!

New to Colorado and looking for a romance writer’s group to join? We’re here for you!

Been writing romance awhile and looking for some other writers to commiserate with, umm, I mean, socialize with? We’ve got your back too.

Just stumbled upon the amazing world of romance fiction and can’t wait to get your ideas transformed into words? Come on down!

Surf around the website a little and be sure to check out our events and online workshops. We’ve got a lot to offer you like monthly meetings with workshops on everything from craft to the writing biz, a truckload of online workshops (at a discount to members!), a writers’ retreat up in the mountains, and a mini-conference (with a big name.)

Your first meeting is free, so you can come and get to know us, no strings attached. Can’t wait to meet you. I’ll be on that welcome wagon when you walk in the door. Don’t be shy (or if you are, I promise to be your friend.)

Well, hello there current CRW member! Happy to see you back on the site. I love that you’re here and participating in one of our awesome tools.

Are you here today to blog? Have you RSVP’d for this month’s meeting? Oh, I know, you want to volunteer for one of our activities, (like say, the annual Romance Lovers Tea Party – my favorite event every year.)


Good on you!


You’re the rock in our roll and I’m so glad to be on this crazy writing journey with you. Remember,


Together, We Can!

Hi Everyone!

The fact that CRW members don't interact much on our website was recently mentioned to me. That's true. We're pretty quiet in here. But we don't need to be. This website has many capabilities that are underutilized and even some that aren't utilized at all.

To help change that - I decided to do a series of blog posts to introduce you all to the capabilities of our website. Also, I had the idea to start up some new groups, resurrect some existing groups, and get…

Our 2013 AOE finalists will be announced at the Saturday, April 13th meeting! We're really excited to share this year's finalists, and may have a VERY pleasant surprise for a CRW member or two who entered the contest.

Hopefully everyone can be there. We've got a great program with Courtney Milan, and book reading from a new author. So it proves to be a great day!

Speaking for my fellow Coordinators Aimee, Tiffany, and Jen, I say we all hope to see you…
