Membership Options

Become a Member

There are two strands to Irish Writers Centre membership: Associate and Professional membership. This tiered structure allows us to account for the diverse needs of the people who engage with the Centre.

Members of all categories will be invited to attend a meeting on the day of the annual members’ showcase to give their feedback on the activities of the IWC. When the slot for Members’ Nominee becomes available on the Board, this will double as an opportunity to elect the new Members’ Nominee, whose term of office is 2 years, as for all Board members, renewable once. One Nominee shall represent all members in all categories.
