Best Place to Study the Craft of Writing Without Threat of Pretense

Music City Romance Writers

The notion that a romance writers group could consist only of frustrated hausfraus is shattered when you attend a meeting of the MCRW. Granted, their gatherings are held in a retirement home, but this group, which counts genre-fiction stars J.T. Ellison and Sherrilyn Kenyon among its members, couldn't be more vital—or more accepting. "When you're writing in a vacuum it can be very challenging, and the group is a great place to connect with writers at all stages of the journey," says MCRW member Rae Ann Parker, who writes teen fiction and mysteries. Along with monthly meetings that feature workshops and speakers, the MCRW, a chapter of the Romance Writers of America, also sponsors book signings, retreats and writing contests. PAUL V. GRIFFITH
