or

you’ve had at least two short stories, poems, or novel-length works featuring anthropomorphic characters/themes published in non-paying venues (either inside or outside the furry fandom). This includes conbooks.

Associate Membership

In addition to regular membership for writers, the guild also offers associate memberships. Associate membership allows guild participation for specific individuals who, while not primarily fiction writers themselves, have made key contributions in the field of anthropomorphic literature (such as editors and publishers). Associate memberships can be approved without the above publication requirements. Please note that these memberships will be approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the individual’s contributions to the writing community and the genre of furry literature. If you believe you qualify for an associate membership, please send an email to furwritersguild@gmail.com with your information.
