ANNOUNCEMENTS

Coming Soon…

patinum elite1Spiritual Writers Network’s

Platinum Elite Membership

Spiritual Writers Network is currently undergoing a much needed revamp in 2015 to update website content and further broaden the stage for our writers.

While Spiritual Writers Network prides itself on being a free network for writers, the costly dedicated web hosting due to the high daily traffic the site receives has inspired us to add a new and exclusive tier to our free membership site.

Don’t worry, if Platinum Elite Membership is not for you, you will still be able to share your writing on our network and read the submission of other fellow SWN contributors by retaining a  free membership status.

The NEW Platinum Elite Membership will offer a premium level of membership for those wishing to access our new and improved private pages of the site, gain access into our NEW private Facebook group exclusive to Platinum members (this is a closed group where access is granted by invitation only), our updated resources page packed full of useful links and contacts to aid your writing and publishing journey, newly added freelance writing job board, and get early access to our contests and other exclusive offers.

If you would like to be notified when the Platinum Elite Membership becomes available, Simply add your name and email address to the waiting list HERE.
