Catering to Special Interests

As we’re gearing up for RWA Nationals locally in Anaheim, I wanted to share some information about “special interest” chapters that are online. Some may not know of the opportunities. In addition to OCC/RWA, I’m also a member of a number of Online chapters. One is Passionate Ink, which is for erotic romance writers (http://www.passionateink.org/).
Every year at Nationals, most of these chapters host a party (because they don’t get to meet in person during the year!). Passionate Ink recently announced that their party will be on Thursday, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The theme is “Dungeon,” and the guest speaker is Sascha Illyvich, who taught the “Writing from a Man’s POV” course for OCC in 2010. Last year, it was “Burlesque,” and it cost $25 to attend for nice appetizers and two drink tickets (plus the “show”).
Anyway, to join that chapter it costs $25.
Other special interest chapters include :
ChickLit Writers of the World — Self-explanatory
Faith, Hope and Love – Inspirational
FF&P — Future, Fantasy & Paranormal — Another great party, and I know we have a lot of members in there.
Hearts Through History
Kiss of Death – Mystery/Suspense
Rainbow Romance Writers
Those that write same-sex romance, and we have a good half-dozen OCC members in there. 
Women’s Fiction Chapter
YARWA — Young Adult RWA
I’m a special interest junkie! I belong to five other chapters. So if you have a special genre, see what’s out there, and look into joining before it gets too close. This way, you’ll have the info on the parties at National! (The YARWA event sells out every year.)
Hope to see you there!

    One you missed — The Beau Monde, the Regency special interest chapter:

    They usually have a mini conference right with National.
