The Profiles of Members page is a free service for all current WWA members.
Here’s how it works:
Names are listed in alphabetical order, and anyone visiting WWA’s website can click on your name to see your photo and read about your work as a novelist, blogger, poet, freelance writer, speaker, editor, publisher—whatever your niche is in the world of writing.
If you are a current WWA member and want to be included, please do the following:
Log into the WWA website using the email address associated with your membership and your password. Login icon is at the top right corner of the site. Once you are logged in, click the Login icon again and then the "View profile" link. Enter a 100-word bio about you and your writing in the "Bio" field. Every member gets the same amount of space, so anything over 100 words will be edited. Look at bios already submitted for ideas about what to include.
- Include key words such as writer, editor, speaker or speaking, etc., so that your name will pop up when those key words are put into the “Search this site” box that appears on the website.
- You may certainly include a link to your own website, blog, or Facebook page so viewers can easily find out more about you and your work. Links to member websites or Facebook pages are not included in the total profile word count. Include "https://" or "http://" before website url so that link is clickable.
- Optional: Upload a photo in the "Profile photo" field. A head shot is best. Photos that do not work as well are those that are small, out of focus, too dark, too light, and images in which you are far away or in a crowd. (Picture fields can store images with the following file types: .JPG,
.GIF, .PNG and .TIF. Images are displayed at a maximum size of 110 x 110
pixels. For best results, uploaded pictures should be sized to these
dimensions. Images larger than that will be automatically resized for
Don’t let your membership lapse because then your profile will have to be removed from the member profile page.
We hope you enjoy seeing your profile listed among WWA’s many other talented members! Remember to post a link to your WWA profile on your website or Facebook page!
