Past Conferences

We hold our national conference in August each year, bringing together more than 300 aspiring, emerging and established authors. Across three days, participants enjoy professional workshops, networking, and educational opportunities, with the conference being a sought-after destination for Australian and international romance writers alike.

In 2021 we land on the stunning beaches of Queensland. The Mantra on View at Surfers paradise is the place to be from Thursday 12th August to Sunday 15th August. #RWA2021

Prior to 2021 our conferences have been held in Fremantle, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and in 2020 we had our first ever fully virtual conference.

The conference team is thrilled to welcome you to a wild and wonderful program, no matter where you are on your writing journey, or where you live, you’ll be able to enjoy workshops from the best in the writing and publishing industry.
