Romantic Novelists' Association


Our local groups are a great opportunity for members who cannot easily get to London to meet, network and discuss their writing. Most chapters meet somewhere for lunch and a chat, but several have speakers.

We also have a number of special-interest online chapters active on Facebook.

Contact details for chapter leaders are available to our members in the members’ area.
