IPNE Hosts Regular Boston-area Meetups on Book Publishing

Next Meeting: Sept. 24, 2019 at 10 AM in Arlington MA.
Click here to RSVP. 

One of IPNE's most valuable regi;ar programs is our regular regional group meetings. IPNE Regional Branch manager and past president is Charlotte Pierce (Pierce Press), who directly coordinates the Metro Boston Publishers group. Board member Bill Cordaro coordinates a regional group on the South Shore. We are actively seeking coordinators to adopt our other 5 groups around New England. No experience necessary! 

On October 22, Metro Boston meets again at the ACMI.tv studio.
Our November meetup will be at the IPNE Annual Conference.

At each meeting, attendees learn basic steps involved in producing and presenting a quality book that will attract readers. Providing a forum for questions and discussions on what it takes to publish a book, the workshop sparked creativity and interest from local residents. "The meetings have been very successful," Charlotte said, "sometimes we hold the meeting at a book show, IPNE conference, or other event."

The success of the Boston branch tells us about the continued interest of residents in our communities in making and publishing books. It also tells us the opportunities we have to share our knowledge with others as we continue to expand our network and connect over this exhilarating adventure of writing and publishing.

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 request information about a branch in your area.
