the wfwa

Just this summer, the Women's Fiction Writers Association was founded. Unlike the Romance Writer's Association, the WFWA is exclusively for writer's of women's fiction. Take a look at the description below, and if it seems like you're a fit, come on over and join! You'll see me around for sure, as I'm a moderator for the critique forums (although that could also be seen as a warning, haha!).

From the WFWA website:

The Women’s Fiction Writers Association is…
An inclusive organization of writers who create stories about a woman’s emotional journey.
We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to providing a community for career-focused women’s fiction writers via networking, education, and continuing support in career growth.
Whether you are an aspiring, debut or multi-published author, the Women’s Fiction Writers Association offers resources to help you improve and succeed.

Member benefits include:

 Numerous forums with active discussions on craft, industry, the writing life, and women’s fiction books
