The romance writing community is
a supportive, encouraging world rich in resources. Here in South
Africa, the first community for romance writers was a Yahoo group
called RWSA (Romance Writers of South Africa), founded in 2003 by Judy Croome and Claire Robyns. They were soon joined by Liesel
van Wyk and Leonie Anderson. The group has evolved over time, but at
its core the group has helped its members grow as writers and close
bonds of friendship have been created.
We want to extend this sense of community to all South Africans who write romance. If you'd like to join this community, then browse this site, visit our blog, or email us with your questions or comments. We may not be able to answer all your questions, but we'll certainly try to point you in the right direction if we can't.
This site isn't about us. It's a site for all romance writers, both published and unpublished, and encompassing all genres. It's about growing a love for romance both among writers and readers and most importantly it is about nurturing and developing writers.
Please contact us and let us know what you're writing and where your interests lie. Where in South Africa are you? Why do you write romance? Would you be interested in meeting other romance writers, or finding a critique partner? We'd also love any book reviews, articles, or feedback on the site.
