Welcome to OCCRWA. We’re in our 36th Year!
Established in 1981, the Orange County Chapter of the Romance Writers of America is a nonprofit organization formed to promote excellence in romantic fiction and advance the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy, dissemination of information, professional education, publications, and other appropriate activities, and to provide continuing support for writers within the romance publishing industry.
“One hand reaching forward, one hand reaching back, in an unbroken chain.”
