How to apply: The application process begins with your attendance at a club function, preferably as a guest of a member. That member acts as your sponsor, reviews your application and supporting materials, seeks an endorser, and submits your package to the Membership Committee to start the review process. The committee presents all completed applications to the Board at its next scheduled meeting. Applications and their sponsors are notified in writing of the Board’s decision following the meeting.
Fees and dues: The one-time application fee is $100. Dues are $95 a year. If you join and pay from January 1 to April 30, you will pay $47.50 for the first half-year. *Note, there is a $3 credit card transaction fee.
Our professional eligibility standards: The specific standards depend on your area of writing specialty, but generally, you must have produced and been paid for your work within the last two years. Applicants will be considered on the professional merit of submitted material. Self-published material will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
