Willamette Writers Member & Paid Announcements Submission Form
Thank you for submitting your announcement to us. 


We normally require minimum lead time of three weeks and up to three months. If you have a last minute announcement, try us; we will try to accommodate your last minute request, but they are not guaranteed.


Thanks for sharing! We love good news and are happy to help you spread the word. Willamette Writers members have repeatedly stated that they love reading member news.

Please note that this opportunity is only available to current Willamette Writers members (to join, please visit: willamettewriters.org/join). Please limit yourself to one announcement per quarter. We reserve the right to choose the announcements we share.

Accepted member announcements are shared in our email newsletter, the Willamette Writers Dispatch. We also attempt to share announcements on our website and social media, but can't include all announcements. Books and film releases, awards won, and deals announced are more likely to be shared and especially when we have long enough notice (at least two-three weeks; though feel free to try us for last minute announcements).

Please note that at this point we can't contact you to let you know that the message has been posted.

Announcements are an opportunity to share about your achievements, events, and activities relating to your writing life. They are not meant to be a place to sell, recommend, pitch, teach, preach, or share writing & excerpts. No profanity/strong language, or depictions of violence, sex, or substance abuse in the actual announcement. Please use common sense: our emails reach a wide and diverse audience. If you're not sure, ask.

Please note that your announcement cannot imply that Willamette Writers endorses your product/service.


Members and nonmembers are invited to submit paid announcements according to the guidelines and fees stated on our website. We reserve the right to choose which announcements we share.

Paid announcements are shared via our Dispatch email announcements. Please email us at wilwrite <at> willamettewriters <dot> org to inquire about other advertising opportunities, including our print programs and the Timberline Review.


Willamette Writers shares information about writing related events and opportunities from nonprofits and community groups. We reserve the right to choose the announcements we share. Please email us at wilwrite <at> willamettewriters <dot> org for more about announcements.


Please email us at wilwrite <at> willamettewriters <dot> org if you have any questions.

Date Requested (the week you want your announcement to appear)
We will do our best to accommodate your request.    If your announcement is about an event, please don't list the event date here but rather the DATE WHEN YOU WANT YOUR POST TO COME OUT.    Please understand that we can't guarantee the exact date your announcement will come out. If too many announcements are submitted per week, we may need to include your announcement at a later edition.
Urgent Announcement (Last Minute)?
If this announcement IS ONLY RELEVANT if posted in the next couple of weeks (e.g. an event announcement happening next week), please mark here. We will do our best to accommodate your request.

Your 100 word book/event/announcement description: *
This text will be shared in our email announcements (the Willamette Writers Dispatch) and online. Be sure to edit your text. Make this part meaningful enough so it can stand on its own in the email/newsletter, even if the reader does not visit any of your provided links. Though we don't enforce it as part of this form, your message should be at least 50 words long. Good announcements are 70-100 words long.
Longer Version of Your Book/Event/Announcement Description (Blog Post Style):
At this point, this opportunity is only available for announcing members' own publication news and/or launch/other writing events. For such announcements, you may choose to submit a longer version of your announcement here, and it will be shared on our website (as a blog post) and will be linked to when we include your announcement in the Dispatch and usually, shared via our social media channels. Your message here should be between 300-700 words. Please note that this is optional and will be used as is.  TO INCLUDE LINKS IN THE POST, please put the URL of the link in parenthesis right following the text that needs to be linked.
Your Website
If you'd like us to link to your related website, please include the link (web address/URL) here. 
Public Facebook Page/Profile Link
If you are on Facebook as an author, please add the link to your page/profile so we can add it to the end of the blog post/Dispatch message.
Twitter Account Link
If you are on Twitter as an author, please add the link to your Twitter account so we can add it to the end of the blog post/Dispatch message.

Related Images
Is there an image we can use? A headshot or book cover would work perfectly! Please share the URL of the image/s or share the URL of a web page--on a website or blog--that contains the image/s you'd like us to use. If need be, add some instructions, especially when there are multiple images on the page you are sending us to (e.g. pick the image with the white background, use the book cover).
