About Emerald City Romance Writers

Located in the Seattle/Puget Sound area of Washington state, Emerald City Romance Writers is 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by helping writers become published in the romance genre and providing a place where writers — both published and unpublished — can come for growth, support, inspiration and education. We are proud of our authors and the fact that the Northwest continues to be a hotbed of talent.

Every fall our chapter holds the popular Emerald City Writers’ Conference, the largest romance writing conference on the West Coast.

Previously, ECRW was known as the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America. In October 2021, chapter members voted to disaffiliate from the national Romance Writers of America organization, effective November 2021.
