CSFG membership is available for people in Canberra and elsewhere.
Inner Canberra memberships are for people in the Australian Capital Territory and surrounds, who are close enough to Canberra to participate in our regular meetings and groups.
Outer Canberra memberships are for people who aren’t close enough to get to our meetings and groups, but who would like to participate in our online member benefits, including: hosting or linking to member bios and bibliographies, publicising sales, wins and publications through our member news, advertising workshops, courses, events and writing services, and hosting or linking to articles on the craft, business or genre of creating speculative fiction.
Outer Canberra members (Outies) are also welcome to join in our face-to-face activities if ever they’re in town, and can vote at CSFG general meetings, including by proxy.
One pre-requisite of membership is that at least one existing member must have met you and be able to confirm that you are an actual human being (or at least a credible alien/cybernetic facsimile). You can come along to one of our monthly meetings or can generally find at least some of us at speculative fiction conventions and writers’ festivals around the country.
We also recommend that you hang out with us on Yahoo groups for a while (which is free, and our gatekeepers are lax) and see if we’re for you and you’re for us.
Membership fees (payable per calendar year)
- Inner Canberra $10
- Inner Canberra (concession) $5
- Outer Canberra $5
- An initial joining fee of $2 also applies for new members
