There is no charge to attend the weekly meetings but an annual subscription runs from September. New members pay pro rata for the remaining terms. The fee is reviewed at the AGM.

Associate membership is available with limited attendance and no voting rights.

Prospective new members may attend two meetings as visitors before they are expected to pay subscriptions. Manuscript readings, competitions and the circulating critique are open to fully paid-up members only.

A membership list (name, telephone, e-mail address and locality) is periodically updated is made available to all members.
