As we celebrate our fifth birthday this May, we’re holding a membership drive to encourage those who are not yet members of Authors Alliance to become a part of our community. Read on for more details! And if you’re already a member, you can help us out by spreading the word to your friends.

Authors and creators of all kinds are welcome to join Authors Alliance. Our members include fiction and nonfiction authors, poets, researchers, and journalists. They are unified by their commitment to have their work be read, seen, and heard.

Why Join?

Members are the first to receive updates on our educational resources and advocacy. They help guide our efforts and are an important source of financial support. Not only that, but membership in Authors Alliance is free!


Authors Alliance provides resources and guidance designed to help creators better understand and leverage their rights. We aim to demystify the contracts, copyright law, institutional policies, and jargon that stand between authors and their audiences.


We give voice to our members and to those authors who share our mission by promoting policies that would make creative works accessible, discoverable, and properly attributed so as to reflect their authors’ contributions to knowledge and culture.


Your membership demonstrates your commitment to the progress of culture and knowledge and makes you the first to receive updates on activities and resources.


Members are our most important source of financial support. Authors Alliance is a public-supported 501(c)(3) organization that relies on members’ tax-deductible donations to run effectively.

We’re committed to making our resources available to all, and membership in Authors Alliance is free (although donations are gratefully accepted).
