Beginning in April 2023 we’ll meet on the second Friday of the month.  The meeting room will open at 1:30 PM and the meeting will start at 2:00 PM, when we will introduce any guests in attendance, our featured speaker or other event.  Following our premier event, we break for 15 minutes and then reconvene for club business and reports from members and guests about their writing, publishing, and marketing efforts.

          We encourage members to bring and display their published books at our meetings. There is a table where you can place your books for viewing or sale.  You may also donate books or other items of interest as door prizes.

          The president usually conducts a drawing for any donated books or items for SASP paid members. Guests and unpaid members may purchase a drawing ticket for $1. (Members may also purchase additional tickets for $1.)

          We invite and encourage guests to attend our meetings. We are sure you will find help and encouragement from fellow writers and will want to join us. We enthusiastically welcome guests of individual SASP members.

          To join Spokane Authors and Self-Publishers, simply attend a meeting and pay your dues for the year. If you cannot attend, mail your dues and contact information to the address below.

          Membership dues of $15 are due in January. (Initial dues are $15 if joining in December, January, February or March; $10 if joining in April, May, June, or July; and $5 if joining in August, September, October or November.) To avoid being dropped from our roster and Web-site, please mail your renewal to: SASP, P.O. Box 18573, Spokane, WA 99228-0573. Since we now meet at the Shadle Library there are normally no other expenses involved with membership in Spokane Authors and Self-Publishers.

          Chuck O’Connor, Elmer Freeman, Joe Meiners, and Dan Volmer established this non-profit organization. They wanted to share with others their interests in writing, producing, and publishing their own books. SASP held its first public meeting November 1998. The founders want members to share their experience, expertise, and resources for mutual benefit. Membership is open to anyone, published or unpublished who is interested in self-publishing. (Over the past ten years the organization has grown to include writers, poets, photographers, artists, and illustrators, and those attempting traditional as well as self-publishing.)


Here are our bylaws.
