Education

FAPA holds a series of educational conferences for authors and publishers each year. Our two-day Annual Conference is held in August. Regional workshops focused on specific publishing topics are held across Florida year round.

Our affiliate, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), generously offers FAPA members the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to its annual Publishing University. The scholarship details vary each year, but generally cover tuition for the full, two-day Publishing University.

The FAPA Gold Medal Award provided an instantaneous (and continuing) boost to my promotional efforts.

Book Awards

Each year, the FAPA President?s Book Awards program recognizes book publishing excellence and creativity in design, content, and production for North American authors and publishers. Librarians, book industry professionals, and educators from Florida and other states will judge content, theme, layout, and cover design elements.

Networking

There’s no reason to go it alone in publishing when you’re a member of FAPA. Many members have found that the best membership benefit is the ability to email FAPA Staff with publishing questions. We offer quick, industry-standard answers; when we don’t know the answer, we find someone who does!
