The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) is dedicated to meeting the needs of Christian fiction writers, both published and unpublished. Our chapter’s regularly scheduled meetings help ACFW members grow in the craft and business of writing, and to bring faith, fiction and fellowship to the SF Bay Area community.
Join us! Membership benefits include the following:
- Regular meetings that provide a forum for fellowship and community-building
- Access to publishing professionals
- Opportunities to learn and develop the writing craft
- Marketing assistance through networking and other venues
- Monthly e-newsletter
- Peer critiques
- Opportunities to sell your published books
To become a member you must first join ACFW. You can apply online at: www.acfw.com/memberapp.shtml. National membership dues are $65 for first year and $45 for renewal.
Once a national member, you may join our local chapter by attending one of our meetings (but no more than two), completing an application form, and paying the $10 annual membership fee. These chapter fees are used to supply refreshments for meetings, offset travel costs and honoraria for professional speakers, and other office expenses (e.g. postage, banking, etc.). Mini-conferences and workshops may require additional fundraising or special fees for the events. You can download a membership information sheet to get all the details, as well as a new member application. Also join us online at http://www.meetup.com/acfwsfbayarea/.
