Our next meeting:
Date: Saturday, January 11, 2020
- Board Meeting: 10am
- General Meeting: 11am*
- Workshop: Blurb writing – D.L. Jackson
- Feedback Session (members only)
* This month’s meeting is a members only meeting. Members, please sign up for the potluck on the NHRWA forum or via the Facebook group.
Bring your computers and power cables.
The blurb, one of the most hated, yet vital things an author must write if they want to sell books. In this mini-class, we will take a look at what works and what doesn’t, where to start, and most importantly, when to end.
Participants should bring a book they’ve written, or are writing, that needs a blurb. We will work on writing three versions of a blurb for that book.
Authors should expect to walk out of the class with:
A Blurb (250 words or less)
A mini-blurb (two to three sentences for a quick pitch)
A one-liner. (Short, sweet and a social media necessity)
Come prepared to roll up your sleeves and have fun.
Place: Upstairs Meeting Room, Baker Free Library, Bow, NH
(Remember to park in the adjacent lots. Do NOT park in the library lot.)
REMINDERS: Contact Gina Leuci to reserve your spot for the feedback session. All members are welcome to stay for critique, but to bring pages, you need to reserve your spot.

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!
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.
