We are a friendly and supportive group of writers who live in the Southern Tier of New York and the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania and who provide encouragement and support for each other.

A romance is any story that features a central love story and has a satisfying and happy ending. Romances can be contemporary, paranormal, fantasy, sci fi, historical, inspirational, suspense and young adult. Learn more about Romances here. About the Romance Genre
