Join us

Our membership criteria are similar to those of the Society of Authors. We welcome applications from writers living and working in or within reach of Oxford who have had a full-length work published, broadcast or performed commercially (not at the author’s expense) or who have published or broadcast an equivalent body of shorter items e.g. articles, stories or poems. Those whose work is all self-published may also be able to join at the discretion of the committee. In all cases, the decision of the committee is final.

  • The annual subscription is £25 by standing order.
  • Please note that, in order to simplify the business of collecting subscriptions, all subscriptions fall due for renewal on 1 December of each year. However, if you join very late in the year we can sometimes be flexible.
  • We always do our best to extend a warm welcome to new members.

If you would like to join Writers in Oxford and are professionally qualified to do so, please send us your details by email to, or use the form below. We will then email you back, giving details of how to make your payment by cheque or standing order.
