I’ve been a member of a couple writer’s associations, and in my personal opinion they can either be a great source of networking and inspiration, or they can leave you lacking.
A lot depends on how appropriate the group is to your specific brand of writing, and also your own attitude and approach.
For example, I’m a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and feel that it’s a very worthwhile organization. I’ve learned a lot from it and have met some really wonderful people there.
But other organizations haven’t done it for me.
For this question Thursday, I want to hear from you.
Are writers associations worth it?[polldaddy poll=7305061]
What’s been your experience?
