We are Chapter #125, the Gulf Coast Chapter of the Romance Writers of America®.

We serve the romance authors of the Alabama, Florida and Mississippi Gulf Coasts and our members range from beginner to PRO, from unpublished to PAN. We write in every sub-genre of romance including: Contemporary, Inspirational, Historical, Paranormal, Erotic Romance, Romantic Suspense, and Young Adult.

If you’re looking for a group dedicated to nurturing beginning writers, helping intermediate writers get to the next level, and assisting published authors to maintain career success, you’ve come to the right place.

Our chapter meets on the first Saturday of every month from 11 AM to 1 PM. There will be no meeting for the month of December.

Meetings are held in the Carpe Diem Coffee House located at 4072 Old Shell Road, Mobile, Alabama 36608. Phone number for location:  (251) 304-0448. The meeting will be upstairs.


We also have a remote attendance option for those who cannot attend in person; please inquire at hagg@mindspring.com if you are interested in attending remotely (using Adobe Connect technology).

You are welcome to attend one meeting as a guest.

Membership Dues are $25 annually and chapter members must also belong to the Romance Writers of America®.  Your RWA membership will be verified  at the time you join. Members are encouraged to participate in the chapter’s Yahoo Group list.
