Who We Are. The Textbook & Academic Authors Association (TAA) provides a wide range of professional development resources, events, and networking opportunities for textbook authors and authors of scholarly journal articles and books.
As a TAA member, you become part of a diverse community of textbook and academic authors with similar interests and goals. Each new member enriches the community experience by expanding its breadth of knowledge and creating more opportunities for networking and collaboration.
Network with your fellow authors in the online member community by joining the Textbook Writing & Publishing discussion group or the Academic Writing Discussion Group. You can also join the Writing Accountability discussion group to share your writing goals and progress with other members.
Membership dues are paid on an annual basis. Your renewal date is one year from your join date.
