A message from your President

Have you ever wanted to learn more about your fellow YARWA members? Each month we will be spotlighting 5 YARWA members. Our “Featured Members” will include some informal question-and-answers on varying YARWA and writing topics. Click on the link below to view this month’s members.
The Rosemary contest has come to a close, so finalists in each category will receive a badge pin, and an e-badge for their finalist’s book cover and website. The winners will also receive a plaque. More to come soon.
We have approved a new published contest. Monica Jones is heading up the committee to put this together. More to come. Thank you, Monica!
And of course we will continue to offer fantastic workshops, chats, and loop discussions to name just a few of the great benefits to being a YARWA member.
