Join Us

TasWriters welcomes new members any time and we are pleased to announce that our new membership system is up and going so you can join via the link below, which will transfer you to the membership management system (this is called Wild Apricot).

Membership is open – please join here!*

*Please note if your payment is not accepted immediately please try again. This occasionally occurs if there is a high volume of traffic through the payment system, which prevents the system from processing transactions. A few minutes wait before trying again usually fixes the problem.
