Northern Lights Writers (NLW)
A chapter of the Romance Writers of America (RWA), with meetings located in Wyoming, Minnesota.
Meetings are the third Saturday of every month from 10am to 12pm at the Wyoming Area Giese Memorial Library, 26855 Forest Blvd., Wyoming, MN. Guests age 18 and over are welcome.
The chapter formed in 2003 for the purpose to advance the professional interests of career-focused writers through networking, information, education, and support for writers within the romance publishing industry.
NLW is happy to accept new members to our ranks. Potential members can attend two meetings to see if they are interested in joining our group, at that point they will need to decide to become a member or not. If so, they will need to join the National group – RWA; and then NLW; both require annual dues.
