Membership is open to anyone interested in the growth of
LGBT writers, literature, and publishers. Members come from
all walks of life: book and magazine writers, editors,
agents, marketing, sub-rights, publicity and sales people,
booksellers, designers, librarians, and general book lovers.
Annual dues are $40 and are tax-deductible as a business
expense. The benefits to membership are: discounts to
events, nominating and voting privileges for the Triangle
Awards, and the knowledge that you are supporting the
Triangle in its efforts to promote LGBT literature.
We offer three categories of membership. All members receive
discounts to events and are eligible to nominate candidates
for the Bill Whitehead Award for Lifetime Achievement and
the Whitehead judging panel. All members have the
satisfaction of knowing that they are supporting the
Triangle in its efforts to shine much needed light on the
best lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered writing
published each year (mainstream awards often overlooked
prize-worthy books from our community).
Our basic membership is $40 per year. Couples living

is legal in all 50 states!). These members are eligible to
nominate one book annually for the Triangle's other literary
awards for free, waiving the customary $35 entrance fee. The
Publishing Triangle is a registered 501-c-6 organization;
dues are not deductible as a charitable expense. Consult
your accountant on how, under certain circumstances, dues
and other payments to the Triangle are deductible.
