Founding Member


**This price is an introductory price available for the first membership year only and only for memberships purchased while the promotion lasts.**

Founding Members have access to general member forums, resources (including DIY lessons and exercises), Fiction Talk, and a selection of digital downloads. Additional services may be added over the membership year.
This membership level does not include additional paid products (such as tutorial subscriptions), which can be added/purchased separately when available, or the Pro Forum.

This membership level will not automatically renew at the end of the year. However, before the membership expires, Founding Members will be able to purchase a Founding Members Extended membership ($50) for the second year. The Extended membership will automatically renew, at $50 every year thereafter, until the member cancels (or the membership site closes). See note below for more on renewals.

REFUNDS: Full refunds are available up to seven (7) days after purchase of this membership. See your member account screen for a link to the refund form.

Note: Due to limitations of the software, Founding Member memberships cannot auto-renew from the first year to the second at a different price, thus the need to purchase a new membership for year two and beyond. The Extended membership option will become available to Founding Members at the end of October, 2015, and it will auto-renew, so you won’t have to manually purchase it every year.

  • If you choose not to renew after one year as a Founding Member, do nothing—your membership will be canceled after the expiration date (and you will no longer have access to member-only areas of the site).
  • If you want to renew at the Extended price of $50 per year, simply purchase Founding Member Extended before your Founding Member membership expires.
  • If you want a different membership product, choose from other memberships available at the time of renewal.
