Christmas and Holiday Gift Ideas

Women’s Fiction Writers Association

I have another Holiday gift suggestion:  membership in Women’s Fiction Writers Association. This online group has the subtitle: For aspiring, debut and multi-published authors, which truly covers all writers of this genre.

It’s Website: www.womensfictionwriters.org, is clear. On its home page it states, “WFWA is a community for career-focused women’s fiction writers.” At About Us it invites those “who create stories about a woman’s emotional journey” to be members and explains it is a volunteer-run organization. It accomplishes its mission through “networking, education and continuing support in career growth.”

This online group was founded in 2013 and offers a wide range of opportunities to improve craft, meet online with other writers of women’s fiction, critique and be critiqued and read the latest news about the industry. It provides a “home” for those who don’t write true romance but include romantic elements in their stories. A woman’s journey includes many passages, and women’s fiction writers understand them.

Other opportunities this organization offers:

  • A list of agents looking for women’s fiction manuscripts
  • Pitch sessions
  • Rising Star contest
  • Quarterly e-zine, Write On!
  • Workshops

WFWA is offering its first writers’ retreat Sept.-24-27, 2015 in Albuquerque, NM.

Check out its Web site, www.womensfictionwriters.org, and consider putting this request on your gift wish list.
