ABOUT THE AUTHOR’S GUILD
The Authors Guild is the nation’s oldest and largest professional organization for writers. Since its beginnings over a century ago, they have served as the collective voice of American authors.
The Guild advocates for authors on issues of copyright, fair contracts, free speech and tax fairness, and has initiated lawsuits in defense of authors’ rights, where necessary. They represent authors on the Hill, in state legislatures, and in government agencies. And they work to establish fair royalty rates for both e-books and print books. Learn more about some of their success stories here. Their members include novelists, historians, journalists, and poets—traditionally and independently published—as well as literary agents and representatives of writers’ estates.
