Membership registration and renewal
Asia Pacific Writers introduced membership fees in an attempt to fund an administrative function. We seek an alternative way to fund the organisation and hope to abolish this annual subscription model. We know it is valuable for writers to have a larger, wider international network than one reliant on paid members.
In the meantime, we strongly encourage you to register as a member of Asia Pacific Writers and Translators Association. You will join our mailing lists and become part of the network. Should we find an alternative way to support an administrative function, your fees will be used towards your participation in future conferences.
After making your membership payment you will be directed automatically to a registration page. If your password doesn’t appear in your inbox, check your spam folder.
Existing members can renew their membership by logging in to their profile.
