About Us
 

Organized in 1982, the San Diego chapter of Romantic Writers of America is a not-for-profit organization that promotes excellence in romantic fiction, helps writers become published and establish careers in their writing field, and provides continuing support for writers within the romance publishing industry. The chapter offers members a vehicle for exchanging industry news, information, writing tips, support, and encouragement, and it benefits literacy. The San Diego chapter is affiliated with the national Romance Writers of America organization as Chapter 54.  We are honored to count among our members Jill Limber, former president of the national RWA.

We hold monthly meetings on the third Saturday of most months except July, August, and December. Our programs span a full day, including a morning session, followed by a chapter business meeting and lunch, then an afternoon session.

Guests are welcome at the monthly meetings for up to two visits. Only members may attend additional meetings and enjoy the other benefits of membership. (Join our chapter.) Chapter members must also be members in good standing of the national organization, Romance Writers of America, Inc. (Join RWA national.)

 
RWA - San Diego was incorporated in the State of California in May, 1987, as a nonprofit mutual benefit corporation organized under California  Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporation Law. It is governed by Section 501 (c) 6 of the federal Internal Revenue Code. According to IRS regulations, membership dues and donations are not deductible as a charitable expense. Depending on your situation, you might be able to claim them as a business expense. Consult a tax professional for advice.
