Site Policies

Policies for the Member areas of The Editor’s Blog

Copyright
Writing exercises and the forums may include stories or other original material; all copyrights belong to the author of the material. Members are reminded to treat copyrighted material appropriately.

Membership
Length of Membership: General memberships last for one year. Some memberships will automatically renew at the same price every year while other memberships will expire at the end of a single year with no automatic renewal. Members with single-year memberships can choose from available membership levels at the time their single-year memberships expires if they want to register for an additional year.

A few exceptions.*

*Founding Members have the option, at the end of the first year, of renewing at $50 per year unless membership lapses or is canceled. If a Founding Member allows membership to lapse or cancels membership and then joins again, registration will be at the then-current membership price (as of the new registration date).

*Legacy Members have the option, at the end of the first year, of renewing at $60 per year unless membership lapses or is canceled. If a Legacy Member allows membership to lapse or cancels membership and then joins again, registration will be at the then-current membership price (as of the new registration date).

*Additional services may be made available for shorter time periods—the length of membership for all products and services is included in the service/product description.

Cancellation: Members may cancel automatically renewing memberships at any time; however, there are no refunds except as noted below. Single-year memberships will expire at the end of a year; no cancellation is necessary.

Refunds: Full refunds for membership fees are available if the service is canceled within seven (7) days of registration or renewal. Request a refund from your account page.

There is no pro-rated refund.

Social Media Links
Because this is a member-only site, there are no links to social media sites.
