Write Touch Readers' Award Contest The 2014 Write Touch Readers' Award Contest, WisRWA's contest for published authors, is now underway! Our judges are enthusiastic romance and women's fiction readers and especially enjoy discovering new authors. One judge said:

"When I'm in a bookstore, I always look for more books by the authors whose work I've read in the contest. Then I tell people around me about the great new authors I've discovered by being a judge. Keep the books coming!"

Find details on our Contests page.

Ana Leigh WisRWA mourns the passing of long-time member Anna Lee Baier (w/a Ana Leigh). A New York Time and USA Today bestselling author of historical romance, Ana was recently honored with WisRWA's Lifetime Achievement award. She is remembered for her kindness and warmth, and especially her generosity with new writers just starting their careers. She had the ability to make each person she encountered in WisRWA feel special and important. We will miss her.
