As everyone would be aware, not all members are able to afford an upgraded membership. That's why we have a sponsorship option.
By sponsoring someone for a Gold membership, you are helping them grow as writers. Just being able to enter the Challenge is a big thing.
If you already know who you would like to sponsor, please use this link:
If you aren't sure, please send me a Private Message here on the forums, and I'll keep an eye out.
In the same way, if you are experiencing genuine financial difficulty, but long to be a Gold member, please send me a private message here on the forums with your name and email address.
There are no guarantees that everyone will be able to be sponsored, but at least we can try to facilitate it happening.
