About Us

Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada,

was the first Romance Writers of America chapter born in the 21st century. 
Led by RWAC's founding president, Victoria LeBlanc, the chapter consisted of two published authors and more than a few writers who had yet to complete their first novel.

From those early days in January 2000, RWAC, located in Halifax, Nova Scotia has supported and encouraged and cheered on first time and multi-published authors, Golden Heart and Rita finalists, Pro members and Pan members.

2017 Officers of RWAC:

President - Nikki McIntosh
Vice President - Shawna Romkey
Treasurer - Kelly Boyce
Secretary - Jennie Marsland
