Welcome to Vancouver Island Romance Authors (VIRA). We are a diverse group with members ranging from those working on their first manuscript to the multi-published. Whether your goal is to write romance, to blend it with other genres—women’s fiction, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, suspense—or simply to write a good story, our community can help you take the next steps in your writing and publishing career. Although we are based on beautiful Vancouver Island, we also have members from the mainland and as far away as California. Regardless of where you are in your writing career, if you’re looking for a place of support, encouragement and guidance along the writing path, you’ve come to the right place.
We meet on the second Saturday of the month, alternating between Victoria and Nanaimo. You’re welcome to attend one or two of our regular meetings as a guest. A list of upcoming meetings and where they’re held can be found here. To learn more about VIRA and what we have to offer, please check out our About Us page. If you’d like to become a member of this wonderful and supportive group, please visit the Membership page.
