Southwest Florida Romance Writers

Who We Are

Southwest Florida Romance Writers (SWFRW) Chapter #102 of Romance Writers of America (RWA) membership includes writers of all levels, unpublished to award-winning authors. SWFRW is committed to promoting excellence in fiction through monthly meetings, workshops, and networking. We welcome all interested writers to attend two meetings free before deciding to join.

SWFRW began the process of incorporation to become an official chapter of RWA in 1980. We currently have more than fifty members. At least half the membership are industry published.

We meet in Estero most months, on the 4th Saturday, with a few exceptions for holidays and the RWA National Conference.

The Joyce Henderson Contest, named after a founding member, is open to members and non-members alike. Several past entrants in this annual writing competition have gone on to publication.
