Writing Romance Together
The Melbourne Romance Writers Guild is the largest face to face romance writing/critique group in Australia and in November 2015 we will celebrate its 25th anniversary. Our culture is supportive and nurturing and we proudly celebrate the success of our individual and collective achievements.
Our strong focus on professional development covers many areas, such as writing craft, marketing, social media and most recently self publishing. We have special interest guest speakers, and established authors give workshops as well as member run workshops. MRWG members have diverse backgrounds and careers. They span the generations but in sharing their skills and experiences through their passion for writing they find common ground to bond and find friendship.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary, the members wanted to collaborate on a project that demonstrated the guild's ability to remain current with publishing trends and decided to self publish an anthology of their short stories. Every member contributed in one way or another to the project. They might not have a story in the anthology but were active in helping us learn about self publishing, editing or marketing our product. Everyone was involved in critiquing the stories and the eventual promotion of our finished anthology. The experience demonstrated the qualities of support, motivate and celebrate which the MRWG prides itself on.
If you're interested in joining the MRWG you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Contact Page.
The Melbourne Romance Writers Guild is proud to announce the release of our Silver Anniversary Anthology, Sweet and Spicy - A celebration of Romance.
Our members' stories span the many genres of romance writing. This year, we've collected together our members' short stories and have published them in an anthology 'Sweet and Spicy' under the coordination of guild member Jennifer Lynne. It's a celebration of our history, supporting and nurturing authors, and our love of romance writing.
