Rest assured, diamond rings are not required! Instead, we’re looking for expertise in areas of interest to romance writers. If you think you fit the bill, read on!

RWA Academy is seeking proposals!

Our professional development team is seeking proposals for quality courses suited to the Romance Writers of Australia Academy. Whether you have expertise in the romance genre, writing craft or the business of being a writer, then we want to hear from you. Got an idea? Submit it!

RWA has been educating writers through its small group online courses since 2014, when its Online Writing Lab program was born. This was then rebranded in 2021 as the RWA Academy, with course listings expanded to include one-on-one courses.

Creating and running courses is a viable income source for many writers, so if you’re an expert in your field and think you have what it takes to educate our romance-writing community in a particular area, then start planning your proposal! For more information on the RWA Academy, a more detailed look at the types of courses we’re seeking, and to access the RWA Academy 2023 Course Proposal Form, head to:

All proposals must be received by 1 November 2022.

If you have any questions about the course proposal submission process, please don’t hesitate to contact the program coordinator at
