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 published, broadcast or performed either a minimum of one full-length work or an equivalent body of shorter items e.g. articles, stories or poems. Those whose work is self-published may apply if they have sold several hundred copies. 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. The committee will consider your application and if you meet our criteria we will then email you back, giving details of how to make your payment by cheque or standing order.
