The members of James River Writers help keep reading and writing at the center of cultural life here in Richmond. Without you, it would be impossible to provide the high-quality programs you’ve come to expect from us:


What do you get from joining James River Writers?

  • Greatly reduced fees for Master Classes and the annual conference
  • Acknowledgement in annual conference program and annual report
  • Members-only e-newsletter with tips from writing professionals

Did we also mention that your membership supports great programs, contests, and online communications, all of which are run by volunteers and only three part-time staff?

We have four great options in our tiered membership program that helps each member save money by choosing a participation level based upon how many of our exciting programs they’d like to attend!

Traditional Membership ($40) now includes two passes for the 2016 season of the Writing Show. This is an added value of $24! For ease of use, the passes are completely transferable and may be used by the member, shared with a guest, or given to fellow members!

Family Membership ($70) covers your immediate family living at the same address and includes four passes to the 2016 season of the Writing Show. The family that writes together makes for better stories and saves up to $98!

Writing Show Membership ($125) includes current membership and a SEASON PASS to the Writing Show (that’s 9 shows), and two additional guest passes. Additionally, members at this level will have priority registration for future Master Classes, getting access a full week before anyone else. This membership level saves $47 per year!

All-Inclusive Membership ($500) is for members who want to attend everything JRW offers! It includes current membership, Writing Show season pass, 2 guest passes for the Writing Show, as well as registrations to all single-session Master Classes (not including multiple session Master Classes), registration to the 2016 Annual Conference and Pre-Conference Master Classes, and recognition in the Conference guide! This level saves an average of $112 per year!
