Professionals, Writers and Friends Perfecting the Happily Ever After

Welcome & Thanks for Visiting!


Central Ohio Fiction Writers (COFW) is a non-profit professional association for writers of romance. We also welcome writers of all fiction genres who want to add more romance to their work.

COFW membership includes monthly meetings offering presentations by well-known authors and beneficial subject matter experts; a monthly newsletter with educational articles and member news; a website and email loop for the exchange of ideas; and an annual writing contest which includes the participation of nationally-known editors.

Since 1987, our mission is to promote excellence in romantic fiction, helping writers to become published and establish careers in their writing field.

We encourage you to explore our website for information about our upcoming meetings, special events, published authors, and the latest news concerning COFW. If you are interested in learning more about our organization, please join us at our next meeting. Or, if you’re just visiting Columbus or Dayton (since we alternate meetings between these locations), please contact us so we can meet you in person!
