LAIPA stands for Literary Alliance of Independently Published Authors.
The Association of Independently Published Authors was founded by a team of writers with a genuine passion for literature. It has been an amazing journey since our inception as a writers’ community to creating an association we are all proud to be a part of. It is our commitment to go the extra mile to ensure our members receive the support, resources, and opportunities they need to thrive as authors.
While LAIPA was officially established in 2022, our journey started in 2018 as the Coalition Community for Writers.
LAIPA is now a National Arts Service Organization whose mission is to represent and articulate the interests of independent authors and maintain the vitality of literature. In being the first of its kind, we are always learning, growing, and evolving.
