Gift Upgrade

How To Gift An Upgrade (Even Anonymously!)

Litopia will always offer the best possible value for writers, and a large part of the Colony is freely accessible to everyone.

However, like everyone else we do have to pay the bills. If you can afford it, please become a Full Member – it helps to support us, and it provides you with valuable benefits such as access to our weekly Huddles, full access to the very confidential Back Room and full access to our world-class Writers’ Seminars.

Although everyone can benefit from Full Membership, not everyone can afford it.

That’s where you come in!

By giving a Full Membership to a fellow member, you’re helping them to invest in their writing future. Which is pretty cool :)

And – you can give an upgrade anonymously if you wish!

There are two ways to do it…

  • Go to any post they’ve made and simply click on their name. This will show a pop-up box. Then click on “GIFT UPGRADE” and follow the instructions. Check the “Gift Anonymously” box if you so choose, and complete the payment process.


  • Go to the Account Upgrade Control panel. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and where it says “Gift Upgrade” enter the member’s name. Click “Proceed” and follow the instructions.

Gift Upgrades give six months of Full Membership and do not renew – this is not a recurring subscription.

Thank you!
