To serve our members better, we are in the process of developing a new, more responsive web page. While we're not ready to take the wraps off of the new site yet, you can follow our progress on our new blog page, BAIPA.info. (We've got a feed of all the blog posts below.)
As we make progress, you'll see news and new features showing up there first. But once we're ready to transition to the new site, you'll see it right here.
For information about our upcoming meetings and to register, go to BAIPA.info.
BAIPA is a network of people in all aspects of the independent publishing industry. We are a non-profit educational organization linking writers with the services they need to publish and sell their work.
We meet the Second Saturday of every month in San Rafael for Q&A, networking, and a speaker on a topic or interest. Our meetings are an opportunity to gather information, exchange ideas, share successes and challenges, meet supportive professionals, and ask questions about the rapidly changing industry. Four times a year, the morning meeting is followed by an in-depth afternoon workshop. Check our calendar.
Openness and enthusiasm have been the hallmark of the group since its inception. Over 1,000 people have joined BAIPA over the years and members have published and midwifed more than 1,000 titles.
