To represent and articulate the best interests of independent authors through continuous recognition as the trusted voice of the independent authors' coalition, as well as promote the growth and vitality of literature


Ensuring Independent Authors Have a Voice!


LAIPA is committed to finding solutions that will help independent writers overcome the issues and challenges they face in the ever-changing global industry. A major focus of LAIPA is the representation of independent writers and authors in the literary publishing industry.

Hype, Advocacy, Community

We're a membership-based organization established in Canada, and supporting INDEPENDENT WRITERS all over the world


We do our part to promote and support our members, which is why we've established the indie press, the independent authors publication, and the independent author's awards to continue to encourage the efforts of independent authors.


It is the association's goal and what every independent author should strive for to build momentum and raise the bar for literary excellence and outstanding quality. Therefore, we deserve the acclaim we've worked for and our mandate is to ensure we get it. 


If you are an independently published author and would like to continue to develop professionally, this is the community for you.

LAIPA is a member-based organization for independent writers and authors at every stage in their journey.
