How To Join

Joining Spectrum as a new member

We use MeetUp to organise our critique meeting schedule and manage our attendance lists, so you'll need to register there and join the Spectrum MeetUp group in the first instance. We meet in pubs with function rooms which have a limited capacity, so sign up early if you can.

You'll also need to sign up as a member here on this website in order to download the stories we'll be reading for critique. Please submit a sign-up request here and one of the organisers will then approve your account. Once you are registered, you can access the stories in the members section.

Then come along to your first meeting and see if we are the right fit for you!

Check out the Critique Meetings section for a breakdown of our meeting format, and a guide on when and how to submit your own work for critique.

If you are looking to join our Novel Track which runs separately to our regular critique meetings, you'll still need to do the above first, but please see the Novel Track page for a breakdown of how that works as well.
