The benefits of membership are huge. I will highlight a few of the features here, but please take a look at the site for the full scope of offerings. www.faithwriters.com
The Silver membership (free) includes free posting of articles that can be made available to readers from 225 countries, critiques and feedback, two excellent writing courses, and valuable interaction with other Christian writers from across the globe.
The Gold membership ($65 per year or $5.41 per month). The top benefit of this membership (and the Platinum) includes the Weekly Writing Challenge. I absolutely love the Writing Challenge. It has been such good practice writing to a theme and with a 750 word count limit. Winners are announced each week and there is money involved in the prizes. Top winners are included in anthologies published by Breath of Fresh Air Press. It has been such a kick for this novice in the business to sign contracts for publication when one of my stories places high. The feedback and critiques of these challenges are so encouraging and beneficial.
The Platinum membership ($120 per year or $10.00 per month) includes the Writing Challenge, 12 free writing courses, free portfolio builder, free listing of two books in the FaithWriter Store and advertisements, Annual Page Turner Contest, and Best of the Best Contest.
This is one of my favorite things about FaithWriters.com. Jesus
If you take the time to peruse the website, you'll see that I've barely scratched the surface. This resource may be something you want to include in your writing life for 2015.
