How to Join

SOLA is proud to say that our members have published more than 800 books and that number increases every year. If you aspire to be published, we invite you to attend an upcoming meeting.

Prospective members may attend two meetings of SOLA before deciding to join. Our meetings are held from 10 am-noon on the third Saturday of every month, except December, at the Jefferson Parish Library Eastbank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon Avenue in Metairie, LA. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early.

Capacity for the Napoleon Room at the library is forty-five. In order to comply with fire safety regulations, members and guests will be turned away when capacity is reached.

Because we are a chapter of the Romance Writers of America, prospective members must join RWA  before they are eligible to become members of SOLA.  Membership information for both organizations is available from our membership director, Karen Kersting ( Or fill out this contact form.
