Welcome to the Portland chapter of The Nonfiction Authors Association, a national community with over 10,000 experienced and aspiring writers of business, self-development, health, reference, memoir and other nonfiction books.
Our NFAA local chapters focus on the business side of writing, publishing and promoting nonfiction books. Meeting agendas typically include a guest speaker focused on a topic related to the publishing industry, introductions by all attendees, and a signature mastermind session where three to five attendees are selected to share a publishing-related challenge or question and receive feedback from the group.
No matter where you are on your publishing journey, whether you’re just getting started or you’ve already authored dozens of books, whether you’re self-published or traditionally published, our mission is to help make your journey easier.
