Based on requests by our members, the Nonfiction Authors Association launched our first local chapters in California in March 2015. Two months later we sent out a call for chapter leaders and we were blown away by the response. We opened 15 chapters in the first two months, and we are just getting started!
NFAA welcomes experienced and aspiring writers who want to connect and learn through our dynamic monthly meetings. We are focused on the business side of publishing and conduct professional meetings for serious writers who want to make a difference in the world.
A typical meeting agenda includes introductions by all attendees, a guest speaker on a topic related to publishing or promotion, and a mastermind session where several attendees are selected to discuss challenges or questions about the publishing journey (highly popular meeting feature). This is not your average writer’s group meeting!
NFAA is currently seeking motivated individuals to lead chapters across the U.S. If you are interested in leading a group, apply to be a chapter leader here.

“Local chapter meetings are such a valuable resource! There’s always so much practical information for application. It’s a night and day comparison to so many disappointing workshops I’ve attended over the years. The NFAA events are consistently rich!” – Susan Allen
“NFAA is a rich treasure house of knowledge and resources for any author. In the first months of my membership, our local chapter has created for me wonderful new connections with authors and resources that are helping me maximize the impact of my book and engineer into place the framework for more publications.” – Jeffrey Ritter, author of Achieving Digital Trust: The New Rules for Business at the Speed of Light
“Joining the Boise chapter of the NFAA has helped me further refine my writing path thanks to its focus on the business side of writing. Cristen Iris, our local and now National Chapter Director, brings infectious enthusiasm to helping others become better authorpreneurs. I am excited to be on board as a co-organizer of our great group.” – Jeri Walker, Author of The Two Yosemites
