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 together whom we are eligible for our family membership at $70 per year (we look forward to the day when gay marriage 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.

Publishers are encouraged to join at our corporate rate, $85 per year; member publishers may then nominate a fixed number of books for the literary awards (see the submission instructions for the current year's awards cycle), again, waiving the entrance fee. One individual or department should be listed as the principal contact with a corporate membership.
