Energizing and Informative!
I joined CIPA in 2015 because I wanted to learn as much abut the art and trade of writing and publishing as I could. The monthly meetings are packed full of immediately useful information, and I leave feeling energized. The member and organizers believe in their mission to help others in our trade. I would encourage every writer I know to join, regardless of publishing status. CIPA provides opportunities for all!
CIPA has changed my life!
I had a memoir in progress, unfinished, and after joining CIPA, I met people who helped me to self-publish my book and learn how to market it.

CIPA: An Invaluable Resource
Having been a book design professional for over 30 years, being a member of CIPA has served as an invaluable resource in keeping current with publishing trends, finding collegial support, and expanding my capacities.
Appreciate All the Support
I truly appreciate all the support, advise and networking I have received through my membership in CIPA. CIPA has added power to my drive to publish these stories.
