Welcome to the official website of the
American Author's Association
We are a not-for-profit organization of authors, poets, artists, filmmakers, and musicians, dedicated to the creative arts. Our members vary widely in age, experience, and success, from internationally-renowned artists and bestselling authors, to novices taking their first steps into the world of artistic creation.
Although our homes are scattered across the breadth of the nation, we are a community of common interests and ideals. And though many of us will never meet face-to-face, we are a family in every meaningful sense of the word.
We live to create…
And in the moment of creation, we rediscover life…
Our core values can be summed up in four words:
Teach. Share. Encourage. Honor.
