The purpose of the Alberta Romance Writers’ Association is to promote excellence in romance fiction writing and to provide support for its members through professional development. The Association evolved in 1987 from a six‑week workshop co-sponsored by Alberta Culture, Film and Literary Arts and the Calgary Public Library. In September of 1989, the Association was incorporated under the Societies Act of Alberta as a nonprofit organizationThe objectives of the Association have been proven by the number of professional writing careers that have been launched since its inception.

We are an Independent body of writers not affiliated with any other organisation.
