As you may know, Electric Lit has partnered with the Authors Guild to launch the new Emerging Writer Membership. Now, for the first time, writers who are early in their careers can be a part of the oldest and largest professional writers’ organization in the country. As part of this exciting new opportunity, we’re hosting an Answer Time on our Tumblr for your questions about the writing industry.

The Authors Guild’s mission is to support working writers, and they advocate for the rights of writers by supporting free speech, fair contracts, and copyright. Together, Roxana and Mary will answer your questions about the Authors Guild, how to build a writing career, and how to protect your interests as a writer.

The format is simple, submit your questions here and check back on the EL Tumblr for Roxana and Mary’s responses.

In addition to being President of the Authors Guild, Roxana Robinson is the author of nine books: five novels, including Sparta and Cost; three collections of short stories; and the biography Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life.

Mary Rasenberger is the Executive Director of the Authors Guild. Prior to joining the Guild, Mary practiced law for over 25 years, specializing in media and copyright law, and served as senior policy advisor for the U.S. Copyright Office and program manager at the Library of Congress.
