The Romance Writers of Australia Inc formed in 1991 to promote romance writing in Australia and to help aspiring authors achieve publishing success.
Although the organisation began with only eight members, today our membership is not only Australia-wide, but includes writers from New Zealand, Singapore, the United States and the United Kingdom. RWA has become internationally recognised and respected by both category and mainstream publishers of romance – including such high profile houses as Harlequin Enterprises, Mills & Boon, Silhouette Books, Kensington, Avon Books, HarperCollins, and Random House.
RWA’s mission today is the same as it was back in 1991– to promote excellence in romantic fiction, to help aspiring writers become published and published authors to maintain and establish their careers, and to provide continuing support for romance writers – whatever their genre – within the romance publishing industry.
