Applications for membership are accepted year round, but will only be reviewed in October and March. For the October review period, please have applications submitted by September 30. For March, applications should be submitted by February 28. Applications are reviewed by the committee by the end of October and March; they will contact you with results. Please be patient. The committee will review work online. Because of this, a link to your personal website, Instagram, or Pinterest board showing your work is required. Facebook is not an acceptable link, due to a lack of access if we are not connected. Please read our Application FAQ before emailing questions to the committee.
All inquiries, nominations, and applications will be held in the strictest confidence.
To ensure consistency and fairness to all applicants, do not submit materials other than those requested.
The membership committee uses a professional assessment rubric to evaluate applicants so that every application receives equal respect, impartiality, and fairness. The rubric assesses the professional creative activities of the applicant, and places an emphasis on the applicant's ability to articulate feminist themes using language, as well as the applicant's ability to explain their future contribution to the group (see FAQ for details on these elements).
