Welcome to the new site for the Greater New York Independent Publishers Association. This blog will contain information about our group, publishers, events and other items of interest to small press publishers, writers, authors and people in the writing world. This organization of publishers and authors meet monthly to share their publishing experiences and to reach out to the community with special programs such as these. Here are a couple of our events from earlier this year.
