About Us

We Are Eastside Romance Writers!

Are you an aspiring or published author who’s looking for a group of like-minded folks? If so, Eastside Romance Writers Association has what you’re looking for. Formed in 1992 by Darcy Carson, Eastside RWA® is a Romance Writers of America® affiliated chapter that serves the Eastside of the Seattle area (Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah, Kirkland, and so on).

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, from 7-9 pm. Chapter meetings are cozy and interactive, and we host vibrant, relevant workshops for writers at all stages of their careers. To that end, we bring in industry speakers, talk about the trade, exchange tips, make it easy to form critique groups, facilitate making contacts, and do our best to make sure our writers have a good time while building their careers. We also have dinner before each meeting so members can socialize with each other and our monthly speaker.

Come check us out! You can attend two meetings for free before we ask you to join.

Eastside RWA was recently featured in 425 Magazine!

Our members write in many genres with the goal of becoming career authors. Romantic genres include and are not limited to contemporary, historical, fantasy, paranormal, suspense, mystery, post-apocalyptic, sweet, edgy, dark, erotic, humorous, and many more.
