Welcome to the Southern Louisiana Chapter of the Romance Writers of America


We’re writing romance in the New Orleans region.

When we aren’t busy writing, we’re doing what we can to educate and inform both aspiring and published writers.

Please see our Events page for up to date information on our programs.
