Ten Minute Discussion topic:
The meeting room opens at 2 PM for set up, visiting, and dining. We introduce any guests in attendance and our featured speaker or other event at 2:30 PM. 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.

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 Membership is open to anyone, published or unpublished who is interested in self-publishing.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.
