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!
Since its inception, the mission of Windy City RWA has been to promote excellence in romantic fiction, help writers become published and establish careers in their writing field, while maintaining a safe, supportive environment. Everything we do as a chapter works towards that mission.
While we monitor the ongoing situation at the national organization and assess our next steps as a chapter, we renew our commitment to providing a safe and inclusive environment for writers. We recognize that we have work to do, and we are grateful to members who have given their time to ensure diverse programming options, inclusive language in our contest, and to make our meetings more accessible. These are small steps, but they are the first of many as we strive for continuous improvement.
Please reach out to the Chapter Board with any questions or concerns. – January 2020 Contact Us
