Welcome to NJRW!
New Jersey Romance Writers (NJRW) was chartered in 1986 as a state chapter (Chapter 34) of Romance Writers of America to serve as a nonprofit trade association for romance writers. Our membership includes New Jersey residents, as well as long-distance members from across the United States. In addition, our roster of published members includes well-known authors who have achieved best-seller status on New York Times, USA Today and other major lists, as well as RITA® finalists and winners. Members’ works include contemporary, historical, suspense, mystery, paranormal, women’s fiction and young adult books, as well as other genres, for print and electronic publishing houses.
Interested in joining New Jersey Romance Writers? Pre-published or published writers of romance fiction from any geographic area are invited to join NJRW. We welcome individuals with a serious interest in improving their writing skills or marketability, meeting other writers, and becoming part of our impressive networking system.
