"CAPA" is an acronym for Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association. It was established in 1994 to help Connecticut's authors (and aspiring authors) improve their writing skills and increase the visibility and sales of their books and articles by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and information. The members of CAPA primarily live in northern CT and the meetings are held in Avon. The members of SE CAPA primarily live in SE Connecticut and meet in the Groton, Waterford or Mystic area. There is a SW CAPA chapter that is active. You can learn more about other chapters at AboutCAPA.com.
Why you should join CAPA:
Learn creative ways to write and market your book.
Find out how to self-publish your book or to find a publisher.
Listen to speakers present subjects of vital interest to all authors.
Attend seminars on subjects of particular interest to you.
Network with successful authors to find out what they did right.
Become successful more quickly.
Receive the CAPA's monthly newsletter "The Authority"
Participate in Springfield's "Big E" to
sell your books.
It is vital for you to understand that when you are done writing, you might market your work to a publisher or become a publisher. When you become a publisher, you will learn a whole new "line of work" and must become the caretaker of your book's business plan and investment.
