Member Renewal


Dear Straw Dog Member,

Time flies when you’re having fun… We wanted to reach out to let you know that it’s time to renew your membership to the Straw Dog Writers Guild.

Renewing is as easy as the click of a button!

Straw Dog Membership (one year)

Your membership and support are important to us and allow us to bring in writers who can offer top-notch programs for the community. We believe that writers should be paid for their work, and your membership allows us to always offer a small payment to the writer leading events and reading as featured readers. And because our programs and benefits continue to evolve as the organization grows, we wanted to share with you some of the great reasons why membership in the Straw Dog Writers Guild is important to you:

Reasons like…

  • Supporting Valuable Community Programming.
  • Free Bulletin Board Postings
  • Monthly Newsletter
  • Our Monthly Open Mics: Writers Night Out & Writers Read at The Inn at Norton Hill, followed by a Featured Reader.  **new open mic starting this Fall 2018 in Greenfield!
  • Our Poetry Anthology
  • Our Social Justice Writing Programming
  • Writing Residency program
  • and more!

We’re so proud of these programs and we hope you are, too.
