Mid America Romance Authors

Where writers grow and flourish.


At MARA, we believe in advancing the professional interests of career-focused romance writers. If you want to connect to other romance authors, hone your skills as a writer, or learn more about what’s happening in this ever-changing genre, we would love for you to visit. We are a Kansas City-based writers group with opportunities for virtual members from anywhere. Join us for a meeting!
