Things You Should Know- RWA!


I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to join. But for a while, I wasn't sure the cost was worth it...and I really didn't have extra cash to be throwing around. But finally I did give it a try and it was like a breath of fresh air. Exactly what I'd needed. I found home.

The ladies in my local RWA chapter are why I joined. The main organization is fantastic, but it was the local chapter that would make or break it for me. I have another writers group that I belong too, but there really isn't anyone like me, who writes what I write. And when you write a genre that can be misunderstood and often disrespected, it really helps to unite with people who also write it.

This week there was an article in Buffalo Uprising about my local REA chapter. Buffalo Uprising is a publication dedicated to showcasing Buffalonians and their successes. Please check it out!!

  1. I keep meaning to get involved in my local SCBWI chapter, but alas, my schedule is always so CRAZY LOL!

  2. I envy you. I also loved my local chapter of RWA but I had to drop out of the local because I didn't want to pay the national price to join. Too much money.
