About LIRW

Long Island Romance Writers, Chapter 160 of Romance Writers of America was founded in 1995 by Pamela Burford. In 2021, we celebrated our 25th anniversary. 

Our membership spans a wide breadth of skill and experience, from prolific, multi published writers to those just striking out, from traditionally published and best-selling authors, to independently published ones. Our authors write in all genres of romance: contemporary, sweet, erotic, historical, and paranormal and women's fiction.

Our goal is support each member where they are, to help them progress in their journey, from writer to author.
