An Update on Women Lit Membership Benefits in These Unprecedented Times:
Women Lit is built on community and togetherness, but these essential aspects of the Women Lit experience look a little different during our current shelter-in-place era. We may not be able to get together in person right now, but we're still able to offer all members opportunities to bond, engage, and communicate with one another and renowned women authors, in a virtual way. 
Once we're able to resume in-person events and gatherings, all the original benefits will be awaiting you, depending on your membership level! In the meantime, here's what you can expect from Women Lit as we work to sustain our connection with you, and to bring you great literary programming in the midst of these socially distanced times:
ALL Women Lit members receive: 
* Exclusive access, LIVE, to our Women Lit #UNBOUND virtual events, including the popular Lunch Hour with authors and each other! Live access means you can chat with each other during the event, and ask the featured authors questions in real time! These recorded programs will later be released to the public, but you’ll already have been there, taking part.
* Our new monthly Women Lit newsletter, Literary Lighthouse, a virtual "meeting space" featuring original author interviews and profiles, book reviews, and opportunities for members to share book recs, inspiration, and more!
Women Lit members at the "Fearlessness” level ($1,000) or above also receive: 
- The above benefits, plus the opportunity to participate in virtual versions of our enormously popular, intimate literary salons. They'll be on Zoom for the time being, but they'll still feature fabulous author guests, a "distanced" clinking of glasses, and the camaraderie and stimulating dialogue our members treasure.
There are other levels of Women Lit membership, at $50, $100, and $500. Click here to see the full list of benefits during normal times, including event discounts and tickets, invites to pre-event receptions, Gala tickets, wristbands for Festival-wide programming, and in-person salons with top authors.
