Welcome to the International Authors Forum (IAF) website

The International Authors Forum (IAF) is a forum for discussion, where authors’ organisations can share information and take action on issues affecting them worldwide

There is currently no other independent, global organisation representing authors’ interests in copyright and contracts, and in many countries authors are not formally represented at all. By creating a strong worldwide network of authors’ organisations, IAF can strengthen the presence of authors, and the effective representation of their rights on a global scale. IAF would like to hear from organisations all over the world representing writers and visual artists. We invite you to join and contribute to IAF’s vital work. To find out more about joining the IAF you can view our membership guidelines and application form or contact us.
