IPNE Hosts Regular Boston-area Meetups on Book Publishing

Among IPNE's most exciting programs are our regional group meetings. IPNE regional branch manager Charlotte Pierce coordinates the Metro Boston Publishers group and is actively seeking coordinators to adopt our five other groups around New England. 

  • On October 8, Metro Boston meets at the ACMI.tv studio in Arlington for an intro to media production and podcasting. Our November meetup will be at the IPNE Annual Conference in Marlboro, MA.

Regional group topics focus more on book production than on writing techniques. Topics might include cover and interior design, Facebook & Amazon advertising, cooperative marketing, podcasting, subcontracting for editors, designers, and illustrators, legal issues, and author platform building. "The meetings have been very popular," Charlotte said. "Sometimes we merge the meeting at a book launch or signing, IPNE conference, or other event."

The success of the Boston branch tells us there is a great interest out there in making and publishing high-quality books. Members also learn the value of sharing our knowledge and learning from others as we  connect over this exhilarating adventure of writing and publishing. Contact us to start one in your own community - no experience necessary! 

Membership in IPNE regional branches is open to all, with extra benefits available to those who become IPNE members. Use the IPNE contact form to for help starting a branch in your area, and watch our events page for existing regional group meetings.
