We have a thriving online community, and a monthly newsletter full of reviews, news, views, and profiles, all aimed at romance readers. Visit our blog for all our latest news, or join our Facebook Group to chat about romance.

ARRA hosted five biennial romance readers conventions from 2009 to 2017. The final convention was held in Melbourne in February 2017. Other special events are often happening.
