The Yosemite Romance Writers, Heart of California chapter of the Romance Writers of America is located in Fresno and includes the numerous towns dotting the agriculture rich San Joaquin Valley of California. Our communities nestle in the shadows of the Sierra Nevada with Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks minutes away, and the tranquil West Coast shoreline a mere two-hour drive. It is paradise!

Our members are creative writers working in several stages of their writing careers. A variety of subgenres of romance are represented, including paranormal, historical, romantic suspense, young adult, western, erotic, and more.

Our goals are to support our authors by offering multiple opportunities to hone their craft, such as speakers, workshops, conferences, and writer resources. We strive to advance our careers by seeking editors, publishers, agents, industry experts, and published novelists to guide us in our journey. Most importantly, we promise to encourage each other, and share in the joys and disappointments as a fellowship of friends. Please join us.
