A group for romance writers who live on the Eastside of Lake Washington in Washington State!

In 1992, Darcy Carson and others formed Eastside RWA, a chapter of Romance Writers of America based in Bellevue, Washington.  Since then, the chapter has grown to over forty talented members, 15 currently published.  Eastside RWA is a place where both published and unpublished romance writers will find encouragement, friendship, and resources to hone their craft.  

We meet the second Tuesday of of the month, every month except July and August.  Meetings consist of a short business session and a program that is usually a presentation by a published writer or expert in an area of interest to writers.  We also have critique sessions once or twice a year and every month we share the ups and downs of writing.  

Here are some of the benefits of being a member of RWA and Eastside RWA.

Welcome to our chapter, we hope you'll Join Us
