Authors and Writers
If you are a writer (either an author or an writer) membership helps you to meet other writers working in a similar genre, showcase your own work and use our Members Blog to highlight your activities and shout about your successes. Many of our visitors work in the Publishing industry, so if your are an emerging writer, this is a place to get noticed. If you are an author with a book launch, signing or reading planned, add it to our events pages to let our readers know.
If you are an organisation running courses or events, use your member profile page to show our visitors what you do and to link to your own website and social media. Membership as an organisation entitles you to upload unlimited courses and post to the Members blog.
If you provide a service for writers, join our targeted Services for Writers directory to reach your customers directly. Sign up here.
