Mission Statement

We are a local chapter of Romance Writers of America, Inc.® based in Upstate New York, just East of Albany, the capital of New York. Although we meet in East Greenbush, New York, our members live in Western Massachusetts, Central and Northern New York and the mid-Hudson Valley.

Membership is open to people 18 years and over who are seriously pursuing a writing career in romantic fiction and to certain related professionals, all of whom are members in good standing with RWA®. Since March 2002, our members has represented the full range of romantic fiction, from multi-published authors to PRO members and those authors just starting their writing careers. Our membership also includes successful writers in other genres (e.g. mystery, young adult).

CR-RWA Meetings are held the second Saturday of the mont at the East Greenbush Community Library, unless otherwise noted.
