ORWA Monthly Events
Our members-only meetings are a discussion of ORWA business, upcoming events, and the goings-on in the romance writing world (1:00-2:15pm).
Our workshops are not always specific to romance. They cover the business of writing, craft, writer’s life, and research. Usually free for members and $20 for guests from 2:30-4:30pm (depending on workshop, see listings for details). Seating is limited, reserve your spot at Eventbrite.
Events usually take place on the first Sunday of each month at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centerpointe Drive, room 1A opposite the library (subject to change, see specific events to confirm dates and locations).
The road to releasing a book into the world is different for everyone. Join us for this panel discussion where four of our most prolific authors share their secrets to releasing a book (or more) a year. Carey Decevito, Lucy Farago, Eve Langlais, and Mandy Rosko will discuss their personal process for drafting and revision, and how they approach crafting a romance novel. Moderated by Jennifer Carole Lewis. Get your tickets on Eventbrite.
New year, new WIP? Join us for our January brainstorming event and get your work-in-progress moving! Four of our experts will host small-group activities to help you in whatever step of the writing and publishing process you’re in. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite.
ORWA is thrilled to host an all-day writing workshop from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Shirley Jump! In the morning workshop Shirley will present “Show Me You Can Write, Don’t Tell Me” and in the afternoon she will present “The Basics of Scene and Sequel.” Special early-bird and RWA pricing available!

In this workshop, USA Today Bestselling Author Stefanie London will help authors assess their skills and where they fit in the marketplace. She’ll also provide guidance on how to make your stories more creative and unique by focusing on the three main areas of a manuscript: Concept, voice (writing style and tone) and execution (themes and tropes).
