Happy 4th of July
We would like to wish all our Authors and Readers a Happy 4th of July!
Phew! The temperature is climbing here in the South and with the warmer weather comes…conference season! Many of you are in nearby Atlanta, enjoying the fun and excitement of the RT convention. We hope you’re having a grand time.
Last month, we had a blast at Huntington Beach State Park, where we met and talked Romance with a gentle sea breeze in our hair and the peaceful sounds of the ocean nearby. I hope we do more of these road trip meetings in the future!
Our next meeting is May 20th – moved ahead to avoid scheduling conflicts over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Our May speaker is a very special person in our hearts, the fabulous: Savannah Frierson. Savannah will be speaking to us about Diversity in romance. A topic which is incredibly important to everyone in Romancelandia. I urge you all to attend. And if you’ve ever wanted to come check out an LRWA meeting in person, this month is a great time to do so. You can go here for more information about our May meeting: http://lowcountryrwa.com/meetings/#MAY
We hope to see you in May!
Come Join Us At the Beach!

Happy New Year – 2017
We hope you had a wonderful Winter Holiday and are ready for 2017. We at Lowcountry Romance Writers of America are ready and excited about the New Year. We have some exciting things planned for 2017, including great programs, more networking opportunities, and more contact with writers all over our state. If you’re new, we hope you’ll come to a meeting, meet our writers, and see what we have to offer. If you’re returning, we look forward to seeing you soon!
We at Lowcountry Romance Writers of America hope that our authors and readers are having a wonderful fall!
Summer is Sizzling!
We are so pleased to announce that our very own, Ann Chaney has won the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense in the Unpublished Historical Romantic Mystery/Suspense category! Way to go Ann!
Spring Has Sprung?
We hope your 2016 has been a great year so far. Thank you to all of you who renewed and welcome to our group, new members.
It’s spring – or at least it’s supposed to be, though you wouldn’t know it to go by the weather – and with spring comes life and birth…so what a perfect time for us to roll out our brand new website!! We hope you love the new look. Please take a moment to look around and let Amy Quinton know if you see any problems that need to be addressed…whether it be errors, confusing links…whatever concerns you.
This month, we’d like to congratulate our member, Alison Ryan, for qualifying for PAN at RWA. Congratulations, Alison!
Our Next Meeting:
This month, we have our very own, Angela Mizell, speaking about The Art of Critique. This presentation is sure to be useful as it is clear that critiquing someone’s work is not easy. But it is a skill that can be mastered…. and what great timing, for we hope to see some critique groups forming in the coming months.
