What is the IAPWE?
IAPWE ( International Association of Professional Writers & Editors )
The association helps provide writers and editors with resources as well as job leads.
How to Join the IAPWE
To sign up with the IAPWE, all I had to do was submit a sample of my writing along with my name and email. It did take several weeks for me to hear back but once accepted, I just had to finish the registration and then I was able to start working.
Another thing that separates IAPWE from other content companies and other freelancer associations is that they offer a free membership to freelancers. Their free membership offers free resources to freelancers as well as discounts on services such as website and blog design. Their resources section seems to be growing every month. They also offered optional paid memberships which give freelancers access to additional resources and discounted services. One thing I really liked about this is that not only are they one of the only associations that I’ve found to offer a membership for free, but they don’t have ads and affiliate links on their website.
From what I have noticed, the IAPWE only accepts new applicants intermittently throughout the year, however you can check their website to see if they are at IAPWE.org (this is not an affiliate link, this is just a link to the IAPWE homepage).
