Each IAF member organisation has its own online profile which is accessed using one set of log in details, so please choose a username, password and email address which is suitable for use by all members of your organisation who have access to IAF’s website. When you submit this form you will receive an email asking you to confirm your email address.
Once you have confirmed your email address and your membership application is approved, use the username and password you have provided to log into the members’ area of IAF’s website
If you would like to apply for membership of the International Authors Forum, please complete the membership form opposite. Please also provide a link to your organisation’s statutes or articles of association (in English if possible). Alternatively send us an electronic copy by email. You are welcome to refer to IAF’s Articles of Association.
Who can apply
Applicants for membership must satisfy the eligibility criteria for one of the three categories of membership. Further details about the membership fees and the entire application process can be found through the links above.
Currently the International Authors Forum does not accept applications from individual members. If you are an individual author and you belong to an organisation that represents authors in your country or region, they may already be a member. If not, they can apply for IAF membership, so please do let them know about us.
If there is a no consensus or majority from IAF Members at the Annual General Meeting in respect of an applicant organisation’s eligibility for IAF membership, the final decision lies with the Steering Committee.
Special consideration for certain organisations
If an applicant organisation cannot pay the stated membership fee due to financial hardship, it may request a reduction or give a reason in writing for non-payment at the time of applying for membership of IAF. If necessary, the reason will be communicated to the IAF Steering Committee who will decide whether to reduce or waive their fee and grant the organisation IAF membership. If, within 28 days or by 30th April, whichever is longer, an organisation does not meet any of the above conditions, it will be excluded from IAF membership until it does so.
