Who We Are

Southern Magic is a chapter of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) serving authors writing in and around the state of Alabama in the United States. A listing of our current Board can be found at the bottom of our home page. The purpose of this website is to promote excellence in romance writing, help our members succeed as artists and professionals, and advocate for literacy and a love of reading.

Collection of Data

The Southern Magic website does not actively collect data for marketing or membership as this information is gathered by our parent organization, the Romance Writers of America. All lists and information about members is given to us by RWA so that we may know and better accommodate the needs of our members. Member information is never shared or sold to vendors and other third parties. Member information is confidential and restricted. Only Board members who need the information to perform a specific job (for example the Southern Magic treasurer who collects dues) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
