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!

Meetings

Starting in 2020, we’re moving all of our meetings to Saturdays! We tested several Saturday meetings in 2019 and determined this time is more accessible for the most members and prospective members.

Windy City RWA meets once per month on the second Saturday of the month unless otherwise noted. Generally, the first half hour of our meetings are slated for chapter business followed by a guest speaker.
