When you join the Society for Women of Letters, you become part of an interactive community of Christian women who value the life of the mind and desire to connect with others for learning, discussion, and face-to-face gatherings. Our goal is to cultivate a congenial and personal culture and to provide valuable content and opportunities to our members.
We offer two tiers of membership: Lady Blue monthly dues are $5, and Dame Blue monthly dues are $10. Please note: By default, Patreon draws your first dues on the day of subscription, and then on the first of each month thereafter.
All of our members are invited to participate in our Bluestocking Salon, a virtual literary discussion gathering that occurs six times per year. In addition, they will receive our official SWL bookmark and early access to registration for our annual Symposium. Space for this event is extremely limited, and may even fill up prior to the opening of regular registration!
All members will also receive an invitation to the private SWL Facebook group, a place to post and discuss quality content. On a weekly basis, members will be encouraged to share any of their own work (books, articles, podcasts, video lectures) that is directly relevant to the mission of the SWL.
The Dame Blue membership offers additional benefits, including a copy of Dorothy Sayers’ Are Women Human? and exclusive access to Bluestocking Hall, a monthly interactive gathering that will feature topical teaching/discussion (via Zoom). Moreover, Dame Blue members may submit links to their own work to SWL leadership for promotion through official SWL media channels such as Instagram, the public Facebook page, Twitter, and LinkedIn (all submitted content subject to review).
Please note that 100% of membership proceeds go to covering the expenses incurred by the building and functioning of the Society for Women of Letters. We are a volunteer led non-profit.
