Welcome to Emerald City Romance Writers

Dedicated to promoting excellence in romantic fiction by educating and inspiring romance writers

Welcome to Emerald City Romance Writers, previously known as the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America. We're dedicated to promoting excellence in romantic fiction by helping writers become published in the romance genre and providing a place where writers — both published and unpublished — can come for growth, support, inspiration, and education.

Join ECRW

The membership of the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America voted in October 2021 to disaffiliate from the national Romance Writers of America organization and to create Emerald City Romance Writers. We love welcoming new members and hope you will reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Upcoming Events

Emerald City Romance Writers meetings are open to chapter members and guests. Since membership dues support the costs of hosting these meetings, we ask that visitors join our organization after one or two visits if they wish to continue attending.

 

Our board meetings have traditionally taken place before each general meeting, though meetings times have become more fluid due to shift to digital operations amid the coronavirus pandemic. If you would like to attend an upcoming board meeting, please contact us for arrangements.

Note: In accordance with recommendations from Seattle and King County Public Health aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, Emerald City Romance Writers monthly meetings are being held online until further notice.

    Heather Hildenbrand discusses how many of us are plagued by intrusive, damaging thoughts—you’re not smart enough, you’re not creative enough, you’re stupid and ugly—and explain how this rhetoric takes hold and how to change those damaging thoughts.
