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


Through a range of programs and services, WFNS fosters creative writing and the profession of writing in Nova Scotia; provides advice and assistance to writers at all stages of their careers; encourages greater public recognition of Nova Scotia writers and their achievements; and enhances the literary arts in our regional and national culture. WFNS has pursued this mission for more than 40 years through the shared commitment and passion of its Board of Directors, its staff, and its members. Truly, WFNS could not exist without its members: your dues and donations contribute to essential funding, your skills and volunteerism make programming possible, and your concerns and aspirations drive our mandate. Please renew your membership for 2020 and consider adding a charitable donation so that WFNS can continue to build community among writers in Nova Scotia and to invest in the contributions of Nova Scotia writers regionally, nationally, and internationally. 

Renewed memberships will be in effect to December 31, 2020. If you are not sure when you last renewed your membership, please contact our office at (902) 423-8116 to confirm. Regular membership dues are $65; full-time student and underwaged membership dues are $30.
