Who can join AWWE?
Membership of the Association is open to anyone, and we welcome members both from within and beyond academia.
How much does it cost?
Annual membership of the Association costs just £20 (£15 students/unwaged) or £18/£13 if you pay by Standing Order. Membership of the Association runs from 1 March each year.
For individuals who wish to offer greater financial support to the Association than the standard membership fee, we run a Patrons scheme. Institutions are also able to support our work through this scheme. Please see our AWWE Patrons page here.
What are the benefits?
Annual membership includes a copy of the annual peer-reviewed journal, the International Journal of Welsh Writing in English (published in October of each year), which has a standard publisher's price of £25. Your membership fee also supports the Association’s annual conference as well as other activities.
How can I join?
The membership form is available for download here:
Please send completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: AWWE Membership, Department of English & Creative Writing, Aberystwyth University, Hugh Owen Building, Aberystwyth, SY23 3DY, UK.
Please note that if you pay by standing order, the AWWE membership form needs to be sent as hard copy, complete with a formal signature. If you bank with a 'branchless bank', please arrange the standing order directly with your bank and submit the membership form electronically to us: we will activate your membership as soon as your first year's payment comes through.
Who can I contact with queries about membership?
If you have any queries about membership, please contact the Association's Membership Secretary (email@example.com).
