Join Romance Writers of America for RWA2019 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City, July 24–27, 2019.

At the conference, career-focused romance writers can anticipate:

  • education and information,
  • networking with fellow writers,
  • interaction with editors, agents, publishers, vendors, retailers, and other romance publishing industry professionals.


Romance Writers of America RWA2019 Conference

Romance Writers of America® (RWA) is a nonprofit trade association whose mission is to advance the professional and common business interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy and by increasing public awareness of the romance genre. RWA works to support the efforts of its members to earn a living, to make a full-time career out of writing romance—or a part-time one that generously supplements their main income.

RWA is:

  • a non-profit association of 9,000+ members based in Houston, Texas
  • dedicated to advancing the interests of career-focused romance writers
  • home to more than 100 local, international, and online chapters
  • host of an annual meeting with more than 2,100 attendees

KABAM! (Kingman Area Books Are Magic) Festival & Writers’ Conference in Kingman

September 20, 2019 – September 21, 2019


The KABAM! (Kingman Area Books Are Magic) festival has been going strong in Kingman for 14 years. Last year we added a one-day writers’ conference and it went better than we could have expected. This year we have extended that conference to a two-day event, with a larger faculty, more sessions & workshops, and three traditional publishers for new authors to pitch to.   I have attached our press release but please let me know if you would prefer I copied and pasted the text to the body of the email instead.   Thank you for your time & consideration.
