  1. Hi Jacinta,

    I am interested in volunteering for RWA and think I could enjoy this role and do it well. I’d love to know some more about it. I’ve been part of RWA for 8 years now, I understand what goes into the anthologies, and have coordinated 3 anthologies for my local writers centre as well as independently published 3 of my own books (so far!).

    So let me know. I am interested.

    Thank you,

    Rachel Armstrong
