CPRW LOGO Welcome to the homepage of Central Pennsylvania Romance Writers! Central Pennsylvania Romance Writers is the local chapter (#77) of Romance Writers of America. While the romance genre is a focus for many of our members, we meet monthly to hear presentations regarding the craft, research, and business components of all aspects of the publishing industry.

Simpson Public Library 16 North Walnut Street Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 (717) 766-0171 The meeting room is downstairs at the rear of the children’s library. Meetings feature guest speakers, critique sessions, market news and other information! Interested in joining? Prospective members may attend two meetings before being required to join.
