Windy City has been supporting writers in their journey toward creative and professional growth in the romance genre for twenty-five years. Feel free to float around our site and learn more about us here at the Windy City Chapter of RWA. Don’t write romance? Ask about our associate membership!
Starting in 2019, we’re adding five Saturday meetings! We’re aiming to make Windy City meetings more accessible to those who aren’t able to make a week night meeting.
Windy City will meet officially once per month during the second week of the month unless otherwise noted. Optional second meetings may be planned for write-ins, critiques, or other activities and are not official business meetings. Generally, the first half hour of our meetings are slated for chapter business followed by a guest speaker.
