Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror

Become a better writer!

Same Details

There is a current workshop member with the same first and last name and/or the same e-mail address that you have just submitted for a new membership. If you are a current member but have forgotten your password or log-in name, please use the password/ID request form (or contact us) and do not submit this form. If you have deleted your membership and now wish to reinstate it, contact us and we will set you up again; do not submit this form.

However, if you just happen to have the same name as a current member, please add your middle name to the first-name text box or otherwise differentiate your name from the current member's. This will prevent confusion in the future. Then go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.

If you are using the same e-mail address as a current member (for example, sharing a household or classroom account), no problem. Just go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.

Memberships and Rates

Your first month of membership is free. We figure many people need that month to figure out if the workshop is worth paying for. (We're confident you'll decide it is.)

When you're ready to buy a membership or renew your existing membership, just follow the easy steps below.

Step 1: Choose a payment type.

One-year membership: $49

94 cents a week! Much less than the cost of other workshops and online classes. (Compare)

Six-month membership: $30

About the price of a hardcover and a coffee. Works out to $1.15 a week.

One-year membership paid monthly: $6/month

Some people prefer to pay a little each month. Still less than the cost of other workshops and online classes. (Compare)

Scholarship donations and gift memberships

Donate an extra $5 or more toward scholarships for active, review-contributing workshop members. Or give another member a membership.

Bonus payment

If you feel that what you get from the workshop is worth more than 94 cents per week, tip us!


Your membership expiration date appears on your Dashboard page. Two weeks before your membership expires, we will send you a renewal reminder by e-mail.

You can renew your membership by clicking on the link in that e-mail or merely continuing with the type of membership you'd like on this page: you will be asked for your login information shortly!

If you purchase a membership before the end of your one-month trial, your paid membership will begin only after your free month--you won't lose the free time.

Multiple memberships belonging to the same individual are not allowed.
