Who We Are

Welcome to the international special interest group of the Romance Writers of America dedicated to all things Celtic and romance. Our chapter has the distinction of being run completely online, which provides us the opportunity to cater to romance writers all over the world. We exist primarily to develop and support writers who have interest in Celtic topics, in every subgenre of romance that exists.
We provide a variety of services to our members, from critique groups to a supportive chat loop. We have invested PAN and PRO members within our groups, including multi-published, award-winning authors and brand new authors who haven’t even finished a manuscript yet; we run an active campus that focuses on Celtic research courses, where all classes are free to our members; we have two annual writing contests that focus on publishing both novel-length and novella-length fiction. Whatever your interest in writing, whether finding a supportive community or a place to develop your craft, this is the place.
Our chapter is a place to connect with other Celtophiles, but also a place to belong. While we offer many services, our top priority is the care and support of our members. We love to provide research resources or have discussions about the rooms in a medieval Scottish castle, but we also celebrate sales and lament bad reviews, share in the joy of new births (of novels, and of babies) and provide support during the difficult times of life. We look forward to having you join us, wherever you are in your writing journey.
Please join us today. Exercise your inner Celt and become one of our Clan. Celtic Hearts Romance Writers is where love and legends meet, and we look forward to meeting you.
Rebecca Lynn – President, Celtic Hearts Romance Writers

Judges will pick the most creative photo and the Grand Prize will be a Kindle Fire. Additional prizes will include exclusive Kilted Muse products.
Additionally, one lucky Celtic Hearts member will win a free membership for 2013 for promoting the contest the most in his/her blog and Twitter account! Use the hashtag #KiltedMuse and spread the word. We will be watching!
RULES for the contest:
* No purchase necessary. You don’t have to own a shirt or button. Although we’re pretty sure you’ll want your own anyway. Just show up at RWA Nationals in Anaheim and find someone with a t-shirt or button. Or you could win one of your own during the Scavenger Hunt. Rebecca Lynn, our President, will be wearing her shirt and button all over Disneyland the two days before the conference, and many other members will be wearing the shirts and buttons during the conference. We will be running a #KiltedMuse Scavenger Hunt during Nationals, and we may even have the Kilted Muse make an appearance, in the flesh!
* Please keep photo entries rated PG-14 or below. No triple X photos, please. :)
* No entries will be accepted before the start date, or after the deadline. Contest entry dates are as follows: July 22 – August 22 for the contest, July 22-28 for the Scavenger hunt, so get your tshirts and buttons today!
