Testimonials

Quite frankly, I wouldn't be published without Romance Writers of Australia. The help, the support, the contests, the friendship, the range of knowledge that people so generously share all helped me to achieve my dream of becoming a full-time writer. Bravo, RWA!

Bootcamp, Critique Register, Roadshow... without these I would still be beavering away in isolation writing mistargeted, hybrid, wrong-length manuscripts on flimsy paperstock with irredeemable heroes and overly complicated plots. I cannot imagine a single thing on the 'must have' list that RWAus does not supply to anyone who needs it.
