Membership

Become a CWSO member today! Annual membership dues are based on annual income. If you make $50,000 or more annually, membership dues are $50.00, and if you make less than $50,000 annually, the membership dues are $20.

We invite anyone interested in the field of creative writing studies to become members. This includes academics who are faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and administrators; contingent or non-tenure track instructors; instructors who teach creative writing in non-traditional settings; secondary education teachers interested in the academic side of creative writing.

The Board of Directors will be responsible for setting membership fees and using the funds in accordance with the organization’s mission. Some initial uses for membership fees include:

  • Ongoing support for the organization’s web presence
  • Marketing and promotion for the organization, journal, and conference
  • Scholarships, awards, and fellowships for outstanding scholarship in creative writing studies
  • Travel stipends to the conference for graduate students, contingent faculty, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented voices in the field of creative writing

The CWSO would also like to thank its Lifetime and Founding Members.
