About the Authors Guild. Based in New York City, the Authors Guild (AG) launched 14 nationwide chapters in 2018 and has served as the collective voice of American authors since beginning in 1912. The AG’s nearly 10,000 members include novelists (Richard Russo, Judy Blume, Scott Turow), historians, journalists, and poets—traditionally and independently published. The Guild advocates for authors on issues of copyright, fair contracts, free speech, and tax fairness.
