How do I join?
First, take a look at our Join Us page, determine which membership level is right for you, and choose your method of payment. Options are to use PayPal (our preferred method) or to send in a bank check or money order, along with a letter containing your full legal name, address, date of birth, phone number, and desired membership level. Once full payment and signed Parental Consent form (if applicable) are received, we will send your login info. Voila! You’re ready to go!
Are there any alternative methods of submitting payment for membership?
Yes, you may mail a bank check or money order (personal checks are NOT accepted) through the U.S. Postal Service; please note that membership will be made active upon receiving payment and signed documents. View our Alternative Payment.
How does the One-on-One Mentoring session work?
I’ve noticed that I must submit payment through PayPal, what is PayPal?
PayPal is a secured, third-party monetary transaction company that encrypts your sensitive financial information so the only person who can see it is you. This allows for a safer, more secured way to accept payment from our songwriters.
How do I submit my songs for the song evaluations?
Eventually,a member will submit their songs through Dropbox, a free, file-sharing service. Currently, we are having members submit songs through a designated email address (revealed upon membership). You must become a member of FLSW in order to submit your songs.
How do I upgrade my membership?
Members may upgrade their memberships at any time during their membership period. Simply send an email request to
with your name, current membership level, and desired membership level. We will then invoice you the difference in dues between the two membership levels. If you joined by using our alternative payment method, then simply send us your request (with name, current and desired membership levels) and payment via any postal service.
