Another letter for the BAIPA News [November 2008]

What is the value of an organization? For many BAIPA members it is our monthly meetings, our annual daylong workshop, the sharing of our experiences. It is very much about community, which I’ve written about before. But one other way an organizations is valuable is the other organizations it has relationships with.

BAIPA has some long-standing relationships that are worth talking about, again. And we are looking to develop more relationships that will benefit you, our members.

So, today, I’m going to talk about IBPA, WNBA, and SPAN. At the end of this article are the web addresses for these three organizations, where you can go to find out more about them, sign up for their newsletters or become members yourselves.

3 great links

I want to open a discussion about books and publishing and writing and typography. I live in the Bay Area, so what goes on here is of great interest to me. But, I’ve also lived in New York and New Mexico, and since 1986 in one way or another, in cyberspace.

I’ve started this blog with 3 great links:

  • Litquake, a week long literary festival held in San Francisco every year in October
  • BAIPA, a grass roots, dynamic organization for independent publishers here in the Bay Area
  • Pete Masterson’s list of Book Printers.

I give a workshop about producing your own book, so I’ll be adding links and resources as I go along.
