Joining the Association

The RNA welcomes new members. Membership benefits include:

  • Regular meetings and social events
  • The annual conference
  • Our quarterly magazine Romance Matters
  • Membership of our chapters and online discussion group
  • The opportunity to promote your work on the RNA blog
  • The chance to network with fellow writers, agents and publishers

If you are a traditionally published or self-published author of romantic novels, or an agent, editor or publisher, you can apply to join as a Full, Independent Author, or Associate Member.

Writers who have not yet had a full length novel or serial published can join under the New Writers’ Scheme.

Applications for the 2017 New Writers’ Scheme are now closed. The scheme is fully booked for 2017.

It's a fact

12% of romance readers choose a book because they have read an extract or looked inside.
