Join the War Poets Association

Membership of the WPA includes a subscription to its journal, War Poetry Review, and discounts for WPA events and some of those arranged by other societies or groups.


Membership costs £15.00 p.a. or £10.00 p.a. for concessions (full time students, unemployed, retired, aged over 60, or disabled). Subscriptions should be paid in GB Pounds (Sterling). You may pay by cheque, bank transfer or online via Electronic Banking. 

In 2007 the WPA’s committee decided that annual subscriptions should run from 11 November in one year to 10 November in the following year. Subscriptions received after 11 August in any year will be deemed to include membership until 10 November of the following year.

From 2021 subscriptions will run for the calendar year. So, subscriptions from November 2020 will run to 31 December 2021. Subscriptions will commence from 1 January 2022. Payment methods remain unchanged.

In the UK, WPA membership fees are treated as donations for Gift Aid, which is worth an extra 25% to us, as a charity, if you pay tax in the UK. Those who pay tax at higher rates may also be eligible for additional tax refunds via their personal tax returns. A suitable UK Government Gift Aid form may be found here. Please complete it and send it with your contact details. For the WPA to claim Gift Aid, you must pay at least as much UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax as the WPA will claim from HMRC for your donation or subscription (for example, £2.50 for a donation of £10).
