About our group

Self-publishing has become a major force in the world of books, and easier to do than ever with a wide range of formats and options for authors to choose from. The options can be daunting, however, as can the next steps of marketing and selling your published book. 

This informal group aims to educate both new and seasoned authors about the possibilities of independent publishing through bimonthly meetups in Arlington, MA. Meetings are open to IPNE members and non-members alike, with a 50% membership discount available to those who RSVP and attend in person.

Our group includes self-published authors, editors. small publishers, and representatives from IPNE and other organizations. At each meetup, we'll update individual projects, brainstorm challenges, and discuss topics ranging from finding the right publishing platform to editing and design to marketing and beyond.
