We are very excited to announce that the NAMW Memoir Writing Community Forums are now available to NAMW Members! One of the primary missions of NAMW is to provide a way for memoir writers to connect and based on feedback we have received from our members, we believe that this new area of the NAMW website will help make that mission possible!  Current NAMW members will receive an email in the next couple of hours with login credentials to the new area of the site, along with a link that will take members directly to the NAMW Memoir Writing Community Forums! Be sure to bookmark the page for easy access.  You can also directly access the Forums from the NAMW Member Control Panel, which can be found on the right side, near the middle of every page of the NAMW website. Be sure to login to utilize this new benefit on the NAMW website as soon as you can!  Connect, create & relate with fellow memoir writers.  Share your stories, learn about publishing avenues, writing craft & techniques, contests, editors and agents from fellow community members.  Post your book reviews of memoirs that you have read, ask fellow memoirs writers to review your memoir or ask for feedback regarding a writing sample that you can post in this NAMW Member-only area.  Be a mentor or find a mentor!  We know that our members will turn these forums into a phenomenal resource!  Our advisory board is standing by to answer your questions, so be sure to login and post today!

And, as we look back and celebrate the end of the month of our 2nd Anniversary as the National Association of Memoir Writers, we are excited to announce a new membership level:  the NAMW Lifetime Membership!  Many of our current members have asked to demonstrate their true commitment to the craft of memoir writing by becoming Lifetime Members of NAMW! Lifetime Members will receive access to exclusive content, such as on-going access to all of the audio files from past Memoir Writing Telesummits, new ebooks that are currently in production, an exclusive Lifetime Member logo for use on your website, blog or print materials as well as transcripts for some of our most popular audio teleseminars!  If you are a current member interested in upgrading your Annual Membership to a Lifetime Membership, you can simply login to the NAMW website and follow the link to Upgrade to a Lifetime Membership from the NAMW Member Control Panel.   These Lifetime Memberships will be full priced at $595 but for the next few days, we’ll offer a Lifetime Membership to our current members for $525! And if you are not a current member of NAMW, you can click here to become a Lifetime Member today! The full price of a Lifetime Membership for a first time member is $725, but will be priced at $625 for the next few days as well!

Not quite ready to invest in a Lifetime Membership?  In honor of Memorial Day, we are offering a 12 month membership in NAMW at a discounted rate through Monday night at 9:00 PM EDT!  Join today for only $129!  That’s a $20 savings off the regular cost of a 12 month membership!  Become a Member Today!
