Our members rave about the opportunity to network with other local romance writers. Whether you’re seeking a mentor, someone to beta read your work, tips from writing pros, or to find a new friend with common interests, KRW is for you!


Take your writing career to the next level! KRW offers an educational component to each meeting. Topics generally focus around craft, industry, and marketing. We also like to throw in some writing sprints and writing critiques every now and then to get our writers refocused on their writing. 

Private Forum

Membership in KRW offers you access to our private Facebook group. If you have a question about writing or the industry and need a quick response, these forums are invaluable.
