Welcome to the website of the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA). Romantic fiction is central to the publishing industry in the UK and around the world.

The RNA was founded in 1960 to promote romantic fiction and support authors. We continue to celebrate the excellence and diversity of the genre and provide a supportive professional network for writers of romantic fiction.

Across the site you can find details of our upcoming events, our awards and how to join the association. On the blog you will find regular features from leading authors, editors, agents and book reviewers. You’ll also find tips on writing and publishing.
