We are currently offering full-year 2020 memberships (valid Jan 1, 2020, to Dec 31, 2020)


Membership is annual and fixed to the calendar year, beginning January 1 and ending December 31 of the same year. We accept membership applications and dues throughout the year, but all memberships end December 31 and require renewal the following January 1. (For example, if you join WFNS in March, 2020, you are a member in good standing until December 31, 2020. On January 1, 2021, you can renew your membership and remain in good standing until December 31, 2021.) To take fullest advantage of an annual membership, we encourage you to join WFNS early in the year. In the fall, however, we typically offer discounted memberships to account for the shorter membership duration.

Regular membership dues are $65; full-time student and underwaged membership dues are $30.


We accept membership dues online (PayPal or credit card), by phone (credit card), and by mail (cheque or money order). If you would prefer to pay your dues in two installments, please email programs@writers.ns.ca.
