The Contemporary Authors database is a bio-bibliographical guide covering more than 110,000 current writers in a wide range of media, including:
* current writers of fiction, general nonfiction, poetry, and drama whose works have been issued by commercial publishers, risk publishers, or university presses (authors whose works have been published only by known vanity or author-subsidized firms are usually not included)
* prominent print and broadcast journalists, editors, photojournalists, syndicated cartoonists, screenwriters, television scriptwriters, and other media people
* authors who write in languages other than English, provided their works have been published in the United States or translated into English; and
* literary greats of the early twentieth century whose works are popular in today's high school and college curriculums and continue to elicit critical attention.
