Membership is Now Available!

The Membership section of The Editor’s Blog is now available.

I’m excited to invite you in, excited to see what we can do together this next year and beyond as we hone our skills as writers and editors.

I hope you’ll make yourself at home in the member section. If you have questions, feel free to ask them here.

The breakdown

Nothing will change with the public areas of The Editor’s Blog. I’ll continue to post articles on craft and the mechanics of writing.

There is a yearly membership fee for access to the Membership areas.

What you’ll have access to as a member (content subject to change)—


Writing exercises

Writing prompts

Do-it-yourself lessons

Select books (PDF) at no charge

Fiction Talk (in real time—monthly)

Mini-classes/lessons (quarterly)

Resource collections

Resources will be added throughout the year(s). I hope to see the Membership area of The Editor’s Blog become an invaluable resource center for writers and editors.


The fees

Resources are for paid members only; memberships last one year. (Some products or services may be of shorter duration.) Regular pricing begins January 1, 2015, but two introductory price options are available before then.

Founding Member

This membership is available from Thursday, November 7, 2014 through Tuesday, November 11, 2014. (available for 5 days)

Price: $35 for the first year with the option to renew at $50 every year thereafter until you cancel membership or the site ceases to do business.

Legacy Member

This membership will be available from Wednesday, November 12, 2014 through December 31, 2014.

Price: $50 for the first year with the option to renew at $60 every year thereafter until you cancel membership or the site ceases to do business.

Basic Membership

This membership, at the regular price, will be available beginning January 1, 2015. Members will have the option to purchase a one-year membership or a membership that renews automatically until the member cancels or the site ceases to do business.

Price: to be determined, but at least $60 the first year.

  1. I’m attempting to sign up for a founding membership and am being denied. I don’t know what I did wrong.

  2. Can you tell me what you’ve done, Patricia?

  3. Mary White says:

    I had a hassle trying to sign up and pay with a VISA credit card. Used PayPal and it worked.

  4. I have to run out for a while, but when I get back, I’ll check in, see if I can help anyone join.

  5. I’m in, as promised…and so happy to be a founding member. I used PayPal with one minor hitch. It attempted to charge me $35 X 2 for a total of $70, but this was easily corrected.

    • Deborah, I’m glad to have you as a founding member. I might have to include a reminder about checking quantity and price before authorizing payment. I think it’s easy to order two memberships. I might be able to limit quantity to one.

    Have no clue on how to download free PDF for Magic of fiction.
    Help please. I was born in the 14th century so some things are difficult.
