Whether or not you already have your own website, maintaining a profile on the Society's searchable databases for writers and translators can be beneficial. They are used regularly by people wanting to contact authors to undertake paid work, such as speaking at events, writing or advising on specialist topics, ghosting and taking up placements and residencies.
The new 'bookshelf' is an added benefit - a way of advertising and selling your own books from your profile.
You may choose how much of your personal information (address, email address, etc.) to display, and to whom.
