Where women’s words remake the world.
Founded in 2018 at the height of the #MeToo movement, Women Lit was created to elevate women’s voices. This membership-based program has blossomed into many opportunities for you: an A-list literary event series; a society of book-lovers who meet up in beautiful places to connect with each other and to meet renowned authors; and, in the era of shelter-in-place, a lifeline that brings inspiration, broadens horizons, builds bonds, and (much needed these days) simply helps keep us all sane.
What’s Women Lit? A Place for Literature, Growth, and Community
How do I join?
It’s easy. Just choose your level of membership below, sign up, and presto, you’re an official Women Lit member! You’ll immediately receive a welcome email with all the details you need. You’re in for a whole year of amazing events (including free or special-rate admission to some of our most high-profile year-round events with major authors) and the support and camaraderie of an extraordinary community of women.
BENEFITS DURING SHELTER-IN-PLACE
(More benefits, such as author receptions and catered salons, will come when we can meet in person again!)
“Voice,” our introductory member level, is a good way to experience what Women Lit has to offer! But if you want more, there’s plenty to enjoy. At the level of “Esteem” or higher, you’ve activated your inner philanthropist, giving Women Lit a virtual hug and helping to keep us strong during this difficult time. If you choose the “Integrity” level, there are even more hugs: you can join authors and other members in virtual private salons (formerly only for “Fearlessness” members and higher).
One day, shelter-in-place will end, and we’ll roll over your membership to receive our full array of in-person perks, such as face-to-face small receptions with authors, catered salons at private homes, and tickets to the annual Bay Area Book Festival’s blowout Gala. In the meantime, we’re so grateful for the support and commitment of our members—for you.
