The RNA welcomes new members. Membership benefits include:

  • Regular meetings and social events
  • The annual conference
  • Our quarterly magazine Romance Matters
  • Membership of our chapters and online discussion group
  • The opportunity to promote your work on the RNA blog
  • The chance to network with fellow writers, agents and publishers

If you are a traditionally published or self-published author of romantic novels, or an agent, editor or publisher, you can apply to join as a Full Author or Associate Member.

Writers who have not yet had a full length novel or serial published can join under the New Writers’ Scheme. There are a limited number of bursaries available

Don’t forget that non-members are welcome to attend many RNA events and the courses on RNA Learning. 

The RNA thanks you for your interest in joining our organisation. Currently, we are undergoing a strategic review by external consultants covering all aspects of the RNA's governance and offerings, a review of all our membership criteria. The committee has therefor decided to suspect all new membership applications until this is completed. If you would like to register you interest in joining us when we are open for applcations, please contact our Membership Officer, Penny Bridle and she will keep you updated.
