I received a reminder from the MWA today that my pro-rated dues are due (associate membership meaning : not professionally qualified).
It's a good rate at $50 but then, I could subscribe to a couple more magazines for that.
I wanted to qualify for MWA this year professionally but now I'm trying just to have a good story out on submission by Christmas. I've something new I like and so I'm working it up.
I'm all for professional associations; but, this year I'm going to pass on MWA until I can be "professional." I don't feel the offset from last year's membership fees I paid.
So, cry on raven for you do not call to me.
