Re: [Nashville-Poetry-Writers] Nashville Poetry Writers is now charging membership dues

It gets a lot of visibility and is found by a lot of people being outside of that group, so I think it's better outside of it. But no one remembers to bring a few dollars to each workshop (though I could go back to asking for that; usually I forget to ask). We'll see what happens. I am thinking this might keep only the really serious people coming to the workshops, which might be good too, Basically just need to cover my costs.
Thanks for asking.

Have you considered reconstituting the group under the aegis of the Nashville Writers Meetup? It would still be a meetup, you would still be able to set times and places for meetings, and you would not have to pay the costs. I could talk to Mike Turner about the arrangements, if you like (or we can discuss this further at the workshop on the 25th).

Hi Poets,

Nashville Poetry Writers has started charging $22.50/year per person to cover costs of running this Meetup.

We are charging dues so we can:

  • Cover Meetup costs

You can pay online here. Once you sign up for dues, you will be automatically billed each year. You will always be reminded before each charge, and you can cancel your dues at any time.

The meetup cost for me is $160 year (way more than even paying for your own website!). Trying to collect dues at meetings has not been working. I am barely working, so I can't cover the cost all on my own. Hope you understand. Simply pay before you attend one of the monthly workshops. If you never attend, you can still  be a member, see the notifications and read all discussion board.

Thanks!
Suzanne
