First organized in 1987 under the name Romance Writers of America, Massachusetts, NECRWA formally changed its name to Romance Writers of America, New England Chapter in 1990. We are a non-profit trade organization designed to advance the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy. Our writers’ conference, Let Your Imagination Take Flight, held each year in April, draws authors, agents, editors, publishers, and other business professionals from across the country and features a 50+ author book fair, open to the public.
