Throughout the year, we offer an array of seminars, panels, social gatherings and events for authors to keep you connected and informed about the legal and business side of writing.

We offer webinars and phone seminars on all aspects of the business of being an author and the book ecosystem, providing practical advice on a broad range of topics. We also provide in-person panel discussions and interviews on topics of interest to our members and sponsor social events throughout the country. Guild members have first—and often exclusive—access to these events. We also encourage our members to share literary events happening in their communities on our comprehensive Events Calendar, searchable by ZIP code.
