Hi! Just wanted to spread the word about our little writer's group in Springfield, Missouri. If you are nearby, or know someone nearby, visitors are welcome! Heck, we've even got people driving in each month from as far away as Wichita, KS. That's quite a drive, so you know we must be a great group!

We're Ozarks Romance Authors, a friendly little not-for-profit group that's been around since the mid 1980's. Whether you write romance or not, we'd love for you to visit our group. Our members represent many genres, not just romance. We've got published fiction writers, nonfiction, poets, and magazine article writers. We even have a gentleman in our group. We even have a gentleman in our group, so guys there's no reason to be afraid of us!

ORA meets the first Saturday of each month with a critique group at 10:30, lunch at noon, and meeting at 1:00. Each month we have an interesting speaker. Our monthly newsletter is very informative. And our conferences are lots of fun. Janet Dailey (one of the biggest names in the romance novel industry) was one of the speakers at our conference in September 2001 and it was a blast!

We'd love to meet you and help you with your writing in any way we can.
