The NFAA monthly meetups I’ve attended have been excellent. We’ve heard from authors, editors, and marketing experts, as well as had a chance to speak about our own projects. The networking and the inspiration that results have kept me going during the slow times of the writing process.”
– Emily Buehler, Author of Bread Science,

One of the best things I did was join the Nonfiction Authors Association. There, I can network with other nonfiction authors, as well as learn all the facets of writing, publishing, and marketing books. The Nonfiction Writers Conference — which is virtual to accommodate busy schedules and keeps members from incurring travel expenses — has been extremely useful to me. Overall, this is a must-join organization for any nonfiction author or aspiring author.”
– Beth Gainer, author of Calling the Shots in Your Medical Care,

NFAA has proven a godsend for me in just a few weeks. The available resources have clarified many aspects of publishing of which I was hazy or unaware. And the conference looks superb!”
– Stephen M. Archer, author of Junius Brutus Booth: Theatrical Prometheus
