CaRWA is a chapter of the Romance Writers of America, and so prospective members must join Romance Writers of America® prior to joining CaRWA.

Then go here to fill out the form and submit payment. You will need your official RWA membership ID to complete the form.

CaRWA membership is based on the calendar year, and runs from Jan 1 – Dec 31. That way everyone renews in January, which is easier for us to manage.

The membership fee is prorated depending on when you join:

  • $60 CAD for the full year
  • $50 if you join/renew after May 1
  • $40 if you join/renew after September 1

Most of our meetings are open to the public. If you would like to attend one in order to help you decide if you’d like to join us, please contact the Membership Chair, Missy Weening, at
