RFW Terms of Membership

RFW’s terms of membership are presented below. If you have questions or need clarification, please contact RFW’s Membership Director.

General Terms and Costs

  • Membership is open to any writer of Regency-set fiction aged 18+.
  • Membership costs $60 USD per year and is valid for one year.
  • New members and lapsed members pay an additional $15 USD application fee.
  • All membership fees are regardless of country.

According to US IRS regulations, dues paid to a 501(c)(6) organization are not deductible as a charitable expense, but may be deducted as a business expense. Consult your tax professional for the most accurate information and advice.

Membership Renewals

THIS MAY NEED TO BE UPDATED BASED ON AUTO-RENEWALS. Renewal notices and instructions will be emailed to members in good standing at least 30 days prior to the membership expiration date to the email address on record. Members have a 30-day grace period to renew their membership before they are considered “lapsed.”

Members in good standing who need financial assistance are encouraged to apply for a Scholarship to cover their membership fees. Learn more about RFW Scholarships.

Lapsed Members

Lapsed members (those 31+ days past their renewal date) may restart their membership from the date of payment at the current membership rate + application fee, as stated above.
