President’s Letter

From the writing desk of Katrina Marie

Dear CRW Members,

Summer is upon us. We have a few announcements about the virtual conference. We’re less than a month away from learning so many things.
We also have a couple workshops sign ups for next month. Check those out below.
I hope you’re staying cool in this heat. We’ve hit the triple digits in Texas, and I don’t know when it will let up.
Also, check out the Finalists for the Stiletto Contest! We’ll announce the winners during the conference!

Keep reading for important updates!

The conference is less than a month away! We have an amazing group of writing and publishing experts set to present on a wide range of topics relevant to new and experienced authors. Check out the list here: https://contemporaryromancewritingconference.org/schedule/

And while you’re on the site, make sure you register to attend. Using MEMBER24 as the discount code will admit you free of charge to the main conference. 

We’re still looking for door prize donations! If you’d like to donate a door prize, click the button below.

We’re also looking for moderators for the sessions! If you’re interested in being a moderator, check the links below!
