What is BAIPA?

The Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (formerly the Marin Small Publishers Association) was founded in 1979 in the San Francisco Bay Area and incorporated as a nonprofit public benefit organization in 1981. BAIPA is an educational institution dedicated to elevating the art of the independent author-publisher. Membership consists of creative people who, under their press or business names, are involved in various aspects of publishing.
