Utah Valley Writers is now a proud chapter of the non-profit organization, United Authors Association. Membership is tiered according to professional experience. The majority of our population are “associate members”, meaning they have not yet met the publishing requirements to reach “member” status. These are the apprentice writers who learn from journeymen, or fellow “members.” The top tier is for the “mentors,” those who have achieved a sustainable level of success in the published world. They give back through mentorship to the members, associate members, and others in the community.
Please note that status requirements are adjusted according to profession. A writer’s requirements are different from an editor’s or an illustrator’s.
