Greetings from the Austin Chapter of the Romance Writers of America®! We invite you to step inside and learn more about us.


Thursday, January 17th: Revisions by Sherry Thomas

**Please note our January meeting will be held on the third Thursday of the month from 7pm to 9pm instead of our regular Tuesday night.

Austin RWA’s own Sherry Thomas writes both historical romance and young adult fantasy. On the romance side, she is one of the most acclaimed authors working in the genre today, her books regularly receiving starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award.

But few things fill her with as much dread as a detailed critique coming back from her critique partner, who is dedicated, talented, and blunt. If she provides 500 comments, there might be three compliments and the rest must be dealt with one way or the other. This is a story of survival. Of panic, torment, and the triumph–at times–of pure cussedness.

If you are not a member and would like to attend our meeting as a visitor, please contact AustinRWAorg@gmail.com. 

*The iconic Greetings from Austin mural was originally painted in 1998 by artist Todd Sanders and Rory Skagen. It is located on South First Street at Roadhouse Relics, and was recently restored by the artists, Troy Madres, and students from the nonprofit Creative Action Color Squad.
