Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers (RMFW) is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to supporting, encouraging, and educating writers seeking publication in commercial fiction. To that end, the organization strives to:

  • Provide an environment of support and encouragement among members
  • Stimulate interest in and appreciation for the art of writing
  • Act as a dissemination point for information concerning commercial fiction writing
  • Bring together authors, editors, agents, and other related professionals for the mutual benefit of all

RMFW hosts the Colorado Gold Writers Conference each September and sponsors an annual writers Contest for unpublished authors. We also sponsor critique groups, publish a newsletter, host monthly events on the craft and business of writing, and periodically publish an anthology of short fiction showcasing the talents of our members.
