A message from the President...

From the CRW Board

The Board of Directors of Colorado Romance Writers, a chapter of the Romance Writers of America, wishes to state unequivocally that the CRW chapter wholeheartedly embraces RWA’s mission, which is to promote the common business and professional interests of all career-focused romance writers.

A serious problem occurred within our Award of Excellence contest this year when an inspirational romance featuring a gay relationship was moved from the inspirational category to another category without the author’s consent. Chapter leaders are currently investigating all aspects of the incident. While transparency is our goal, please understand that due process and organizational procedures preclude further comment on the circumstances until such time as our investigation is complete and appropriate action has been taken. We will rely on RWA representatives for guidance in this important process.

However, as a Board, we wish to state at this time that we are devastated that this failure occurred on our watch. We have extended our sincerest apologies to the author whose work was impacted, and we wish to take this opportunity to further apologize to the LGBTQ community as a whole. We take full responsibility for our failure to monitor activities within the contest, and we take seriously our obligations to ensure every member observes and adheres to all of RWA's Bylaws, policies and other rules.

The CRW Board will personally oversee the remainder of this year’s contest, as well as examine and reevaluate the rules and policies going forward. All future entrants can rest easy knowing that their work will be respected and judged fairly, regardless of who its heroes and/or heroines are.

Furthermore, RWA, in keeping with its mission to support romance writers of every race, color, gender, age, religion, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or political affiliation, has been very proactive in pursuing a remedy in this case. We are grateful to the author for bringing this issue to light, and to RWA for bringing it to our Board’s attention.

Traci Morganfield - Acting President
Claudia Burgoa - Vice President of Membership
Cheri Merz - Treasurer
