Professional Writer Affiliations

Writer Affiliations

Are you an author looking to add professional writer affiliations to your resume, curriculum vitae, website, or promotional material?

Joining organizations in our profession can bring credibility, not to mention a lot of knowledge — especially for emerging authors who are just getting started (regardless of your age).

These types of memberships often include training, webinars, support, and even resources such as health insurance and legal advice. Explore the various organizations listed to see if the benefits are useful to you. Then sign up (dues vary) and enjoy the atmosphere, camaraderie, and the many offerings you’ll find in these professional writer affiliations.

I’ll try to cover all topics that are important to writers, especially since navigating the industry can be complex.

Let’s Connect

I genuinely enjoy consulting and collaborating with wonderful authors across many genres. Each project is so unique, and each voice so powerful. Whether the project involves a legacy book, autobiography, memoir, historical fiction novel, or a thriller, I’m here to help with book editing or ghostwriting services.

I also provide manuscript evaluations and help authors with book synopses and query letters to literary agents.
