Your Source for the Latest Industry News and Legal Matters
The Authors Guild Bulletin was first published in April 1913 when we were still the Authors League of America. The monthly publication was first headed by Winston Churchill, its president, and vice-president Theodore Roosevelt. The first issue was just 14 pages and included the then-short history of the League, its purpose, and its membership list. Even then, the organization covered important legal cases relevant to writers’ interests, such as Dam vs. Kirk La Shelle Co., which dealt with the protection of copyright for magazine writers and publications.
Today the Bulletin continues to cover the latest in publishing, copyright, tax, legal, and legislative news affecting writers and other artists. It regularly features interviews with published authors, transcripts of panels, essays on the writing life, industry tidbits, legal advice, and member news, such as awards and recent publications.
