Membership

Support literary excellence by becoming a member of the Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters.

Your membership entitles you to:

  • Special members-only workshops and activities held throughout the year
  • Early access to, or preferential pricing for, selected special events
  • The feeling of satisfaction attendant to upstanding literary citizenship
  • Special members-only content, including community discussions, hosted on our website — and “friend” and “patron” members get a private networking group, to boot
  • Privileges to place titles into our consignment shop
  • Free access to drop-in office hours at various locations around the city (as advertised in our Events calendar)
  • Periodic promotion of your works through our communication channels (one placement per item, every six months)

Don’t know what to pick?

  • Individual (no renewal) — your $45 contribution lasts for one year. You’ll get reminders to renew, but you won’t be billed if, for some inexplicable reason, you elect to ignore our heartfelt entreaties.
  • Individual (annual auto-renewal) — your $40 contribution lasts for a year; the card on file will be charged again automatically when you’re due.
  • Friend (one-time) — your $100 contribution is good for a one-year stint. It won’t renew on you.
  • Patron (monthly, recurring) — for $12/month, until you cancel, you’ll support literary excellence for years to come.
