Welcome to the Authors Guild Members Community

The Members Community is a meeting place and a forum for discussion. This is where you go to connect with your fellow authors. There will be conversation and questions about craft, about the business of writing, about copyright and piracy and free speech, about books you’ve read and books you’re looking forward to, and more.

It’s also a place for you to find out more about what the Authors Guild does and to tell us what we ought to be doing more of.

Get started now in the Member Discussion!
