The Authors Guild has entered into an agreement with the media liability insurance company Axis Pro, the world’s leading underwriter of media liability insurance, to offer Guild members professional liability insurance.
We offer discounted health insurance plans to members in New York State, Massachusetts, and Florida, and we have a nationwide dental plan.
A range of web services are available to Authors Guild members, including website hosting, free or low-cost website building with our easy-to-use Sitebuilder software, domain name registration, and custom e-mail addresses through our GuildMail system.
Authors Guild members receive our Model Trade Book Contract and Guide, and free book contract and author-agent agreement reviews from our staff attorneys.
Throughout the year, the Authors Guild and the Authors Guild Foundation sponsor panel discussions and phone-in seminars on topics such as publicity, the author-agent relationship, tax tips for writers, school visits, and book contract negotiation.
The Guild’s Backinprint.com service makes out-of-print works available through online bookstores and the nation’s largest book wholesaler. There is no charge for members to participate, for most titles.
