January Meeting

Maine Romance Writers is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting romance and other fiction writers via networking and programming. Through monthly meetings and workshops, we strive to provide continuing assistance in the journey to publication, whether by a traditional path, a small press, or independent publishing.

Due to the weather forecast for January 16th,
our next meeting has been 

Coffee On the House

Open Mic Readings

Hello Romance Writers!

Our January 16th meeting will be to celebrate all the successes and hard work of our members over the last year. In honor of this, the January meeting will be dedicated to sharing the written word. Think of it like a coffee house open mic night, except in the afternoon!

READERS WANTED: We're inviting members to share and read aloud an excerpt of their novel, short story, or work in progress, published or unpublished. This is NOT a critique session. The goal is to provide positive feedback and take pleasure in listening to each other's creative voices. 

NERVOUS TO SHARE? We'd love to hear just a taste of what you have to offer--a funny scene, a bit of dialogue, a beautiful description, a creative opening. You can make this reading as short or as long as you'd like (up to one chapter). All writers have some little tidbit they've polished and would enjoy sharing with others. We'd love to hear yours!

Please send an email to Heather Meehan at to get your name added to the list of readers. Coffee is on the house, but please bring some finger food or a treat to share. 

We can't wait to hear the descriptive passages, witty dialogue, and scintillating tidbits you all have to share!
