We owe much to the architects of this website, and this chapter, for that matter! As the (new) person who tries keep our web presence running smoothly, I am grateful for the support and assistance of all of the volunteers who post in the various parts of the site, keeping it alive and vital with all sorts of information. This place is truly a goldmine, so I urge all members to click through both current and past posts for truly interesting and often uplifting information about Women’s Fiction, as well as writing, reading, and RWA. My predecessor, Michelle Diener, put it best: “If you stumble upon the RWA-WF website with no idea of what women’s fiction means as a genre, you won’t be in the dark for long.”
We have embarked on a new year, and our chapter has grown significantly since its creation in 2009. That’s exciting enough. But when you take into account the massive talent of the members of this chapter, the calibre of writers in our little community, it is more exciting still. It bodes well for the year to come.
As we continue to grow and develop as a group, it is my hope that RWA-WF will remain a real source of inspiration, information and support. So, welcome to RWA-WF! Here’s to an amazing 2012 for us all.
