How do I upgrade my membership?

First of all, congratulations on making the sale!

We’ve recently added eligibility for game writing, independent and small press authors. Please see full qualification criteria here.

Once you have read the new rules and have gathered all of your financial documentation proving your new sale(s), please fill out the form below with the sale(s) you are using to upgrade your membership. Because this is a manual process, the membership committee will contact you with any questions or if the process has been completed and let you know if there are any further steps.

If you are trying to upgrade with more than three sales, please fill out this form twice with all the sales you are using.
