NASW joins Authors Guild in support of change

Authors Guild open letter

Authors Guild open letter

Last May, when The Authors Guild launched its Fair Contract Initiative, the NASW board voted to add our name in support. As part of the initiative, last week The Authors Guild published an open letter to members of the Association of American Publishers demanding improved book-author contracts and requesting meetings with publishers to discuss “what publishers can do to ensure this business is fair and profitable for those who create the works that sustain it.” As co-signers of the letter, along with more than two dozen U.S. and foreign author groups, we urge you to learn more about the initiative and share the open letter.
