NHRWA's 20th Anniversary

Our next meeting:

Date:  Saturday, May 9th, 2020

  • Board Meeting: 10am
  • General Meeting: 11am
  • Guest Speaker: Rona Gofstein
  • Feedback Session (members only)

Place: Zoom Online Meeting (due to the current situation with COVID-19 and our wish to keep our members safe and healthy, both the May and June meetings will be held in this manner. Please contact the chapter president if you need an invite to the meeting)

REMINDER: Contact Andi Ramos to reserve your spot for a feedback session. All members are welcome to stay after the speaker for critique, but to bring pages, you need to reserve a spot.


Does the thought of writing a synopsis fill you with dread? What if you could get it done with only 7 index cards (and some notepaper)?

Bring index cards, notepaper and your manuscript (or at least know which one you want to work on) and in just over an hour, you’ll have the first draft of your synopsis ready to go. And as a bonus – this method works as a great panters/plotster method for outlining your novel and can help you see in advance if you have any major story holes.

BIO: Rona Gofstein writes contemporary and fantasy romance as Rachel Kenley. She started reading romances at fourteen and credits them (and The Wizard of Oz) with her lifelong fascination in learning and living your heart’s desire. You can visit her website at rachelkenley.net.  When she is not writing she is spending time with her husband and teenage sons, trying unsuccessfully to keep up with housework, and laughing as much as possible. She desperately needs her morning coffee, thinks reservations are the best thing to make for dinner, and believes in the emotional and economic importance of retail therapy.

Do you have a workshop you would like to present at NHRWA in 2020-20201? Submit your proposal using our online form.

Who Are We?

Founded in 2000, the New Hampshire Chapter of the Romance Writers of America is a non-profit organization promoting the reading and writing of romance fiction and we are proud to be celebrating our 20th Anniversary this year!

We are a chapter of the Romance Writers of America organization, a professional association for 8,500 published and aspiring romance writers. Members of RWA write the novels that make up 48% of all popular paperback fiction and generate more than one billion dollars in sales each year.

NHRWA members write in all sub-genres of romance, including contemporary, historical, paranormal, Young Adult, New Adult, and erotica. We have a mix of traditionally-published, self-published, and not-yet-published members that hail from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts. We meet monthly from September through June, offering varied programming, critique opportunities, and fabulous friendships.
