I’ve declared my candidacy for the RWA National Board’s Chapter Liaison position.
I joined RWA. June of 2008 unaware of what the organization would truly provide me over the coming years. I became a member of several chapters: RWA Online, Fantasy Futuristic and Paranormal, Elements of RWA, Passionate Ink, and Toronto Romance Writers (my local chapter). Each gave me opportunities to learn and grow. I met amazing writers along the way.
Since 2008, I’ve published nine romances in multiple genres and lengths. I’ve worked with a few publishers and self-published. I’ve developed and delivered two workshops.
I’m a firm believer in service and giving back. In 2012, I cofounded of The Cultural, Interracial, and Multicultural Special Interest Chapter of Romance Writers of America. I’ve been chapter president since its establishment.
RWA’s mission to advance the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy seems even more critical in the rapidly changing publishing landscape. Supporting the organization’s ability to deliver on its mission is vital to the future of its chapters and the organization as a whole. The opportunity for members to grow and learn from each other whether it be craft, career etc… elevates us as professionals and people.
Fostering author support and advocacy is important to me. Who better to speak for us than we ourselves?
I’m excited about the road ahead and wish all those that declare their candidacy the best.
