BWI membership jumps

WILMETTE, Ill. – Active and associate membership in Boating Writers International has grown to 430 writers, with more than 60 new members in the past year, BWI said in a release yesterday.

The gain is partly attributed to BWI’s widely promoted annual writing contest that presented awards to 42 winners at the recent Miami International Boat Show. In a recent survey, writers also said BWI provided networking opportunities, kept them informed, and served as their professional association.
