Membership

We have three levels of yearly Ayr Writers Club Membership – Full, Online, and Student Member.
This year, we will ease our way back to live meetings at the Mercure Ayr in November 2021, with a September and October full programme of Guest Speakers, Workshops and Club Evenings, presented on Zoom.
Over the summer months, from June to August, bring along your drafts (in any genre), or a sample of your completed works (up to 1000 words) to read out at the fortnightly Readaround Feedback Evenings. Or just listen, enjoy the readings, offer thoughts if any come to you. It’s a chance to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow writers as we offer each other constructive, helpful feedback.
We’re currently offering a discounted half-listed-price membership offer for all new members of the club. This runs from 12 December 2022 to 12 June 2021. Your membership will expire on 31 August 2022.
Currently, our half-price membership rates are –
£24 for Full Membership
£12 for Online Membership
£15 for Student Membership
JOIN ONLINE HERE anytime throughout the year.
