Join us!

group-3We encourage interested writers to attend one or more meetings to get a feel for our group and see if it’s right for them. Membership allows you to have your work reviewed at meetings and gives you free access to our speaker events.

Benefits of membership include:

  • Read your work and get critiques at our meetings
  • Attend special member-only lectures and workshops
  • Publish your profile or bio on the BWW website
  • Link to your book/blog/author site from the BWW website
  • Network with other local writers

At each weekly meeting you can participate in discussions on the varied works read that session. However, in order to have your own work critiqued, you must become a member.

Joining the BWW is easy! Simply fill out the Membership form and submit it along with payment to the manuscript chair at a weekly meeting. A yearly membership is $55 and is pro-rated after January. Membership forms are also available at weekly meetings.

We expect members to be truthful, yet respectful in critique of others’ work. Download the BWW Critique Guidelines here, and the manuscript submission guidelines  here.
