What we're about
Welcome to the Columbus chapter of The Nonfiction Authors Association, a national organization featuring a vibrant and supportive community for trailblazing writers. Our members include experienced and aspiring authors of business, self-development, health, reference, memoir and other nonfiction books. Our NFAA local chapters focus on the business side of writing, publishing and promoting nonfiction books. Meeting agendas include a guest speaker focused on a topic related to the publishing industry, introductions by all attendees, and a signature mastermind session where three to five attendees are selected to share a publishing-related challenge or question and receive feedback from the group (a wildly popular feature of our meetings!).
First-time visitors to an NFAA local chapter are not required to be members of the Nonfiction Authors Association, however, if you’d like to return to a second meeting and beyond, we do require that you join us online with either a Basic membership (free) or Authority membership ($19/month).
Authority members receive many added benefits including:
• Access to recordings from our twice-monthly teleseminars with industry professionals
• Weekly marketing tips sent via email.
• Special discounts with our sponsor partners, including a substantial discount off access to Profnet, a PRNewsWire service that connects authors with media interviews.
• Special discounts off our annual Nonfiction Writers Conference and year-round Nonfiction Book Awards.
• Local chapter benefits include priority in our popular Author Mastermind portion of the meetings, a members-only magnetic name badge to wear to meetings (after three months of Authority membership), and periodic event discounts during the year.
