Join us at one of our Writer’s Cafes or Monthly Meetings, both are open to the public.  We’d love to see you there!

Some of our membership benefits include:

  • Website Listing – Author page on the WbtR site with links to author website, social media links, and book pages

  • Beta Read Committee – Members will be able to submit work to be reviewed by a member of the Beta Readers Committee. This committee is made up of published authors who will anonymously read and review your work for you to help make sure you have the strongest work possible before self publishing or submitting to an agent

  • Press Releases – Members in good standing will be able to submit Press Releases for new books and the PR Coordinator will disseminate them to the local, PWC, media outlets

  • Services Offered Listing – for those members who have a business, you will be able to list your services on the WbtR site to advertise to our members

  • Participate in our mentoring program for teen writers in conjunction with the Rising Writer’s Workshop

  • Interaction with other writers

  • Leadership and networking opportunities

And So Much More…
