Welcome to the official website of the Maine Romance Writers. We are an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting fiction writers. With an emphasis on romance fiction in all genres, our mission is to encourage writers at every point in their journey. Whether you’re newly published, a seasoned writer or looking to publish your debut novel, MRW offers monthly meetings that focus on all aspects of a writer’s journey, from craft to marketing to the business aspects of writing.
Founded in 1996 as a chapter of Romance Writers of America, we stepped out from under their umbrella in 2013, but our goals remain the same—to support and encourage one another in the ever-changing landscape of publication through education and friendship. Whether you choose a traditional path, go with a small press, or publish as an independent or self-published author, we always welcome new members.

Our meetings are generally held on the third Saturday of every month, September through June at the USM campus in Lewiston, Maine.
Due to Covid-19 however, we are currently meeting virtually through Zoom. All members are welcome to attend our next meeting. Please look for links on our email loop and FB group.
