Welcome to the website of the Heart of Denver Romance Writers.
HODRW is chapter #176 of Romance Writers of America.
Our goal is to promote excellence in romantic fiction, to help all writers become published and established in their writing field, and to provide continuing support for writers within the romance publishing industry. All writers of all fiction genres are welcome to come learn the craft and the business of writing, and to find community with fellow writers.
We generally meet in the mornings of the third Saturday of every month. See Meeting Information for details on location and time. See News and Events for upcoming HOD meetings, book-signings by author-members, local and national writing conferences and other happenings in our writing community.
Celebrate Romance and Writing with the Heart of Denver Romance Writers!

We'll look forward to seeing you there, Maggi Landry HODRW President ...Read More
