RWA One Month Later: A Special Podcast Series

January 29, 2020

This week’s podcast episode will be the first of a four-episode series on RWA: One Month Later.

It’s been just over a month since Romance Writers of America informed Courtney Milan on 23 December 2019 that due to an ethics complaint, she was barred from leadership for her lifetime, and was suspended for a year. That decision was then rescinded, and, well, a lot has happened in a month.

I wanted to create an audio record of sorts to capture where we are now, and most importantly, featured the voices and perspectives of some of those who were involved.

RWA One Month later a special four episode series Jan 31 the officers of CIMRWA, Feb 1 Helenkay Dimon, past president, Feb 2 Jessie Edwards, Marketing and PR for RWA, and Feb 3 Courtney Milan


Because of the timeliness of these episodes, I’m doing a special miniseries and releasing all four back to back.

  • On January 31: a  conversation with C Chilove, Laurel Cremant, and Diana Neal, the officers of CIMRWA, the Cultural, Interracial, Multicultural Special Interest Chapter of Romance Writers of America
  • On February 1: an interview with RWA past president HelenKay Dimon 
  • On February 2: a conversation with Jessie Edwards, Marketing and PR Manager at RWA  
  • On February 3: an interview with Courtney Milan

I hope this special series is interesting and thought-provoking, and that you’ll let me know what you think.
