One of the greatest benefits of ASJA is our members.

Find your community of writers among the ASJA membership.
Connect through a wide-range of in-person and virtual settings.

Joining ASJA means becoming part of a family of professional freelance writers with similar goals and talents. We run our own businesses, write for the same outlets and clients, and have parallel career trajectories. Whatever you want from your freelance writing career, there’s another ASJA member who has already walked through that door. And if you’re eager to offer a lending hand, there are members looking for your advice and feedback.

Volunteer with ASJA

Volunteering is one of the best ways to get to know ASJA and our members. We have short- and long-term volunteer positions, as well as worker-bee and leadership roles. Check out what’s available now.
