What we do

Writing Career is an initiative of the American Booksellers Association that aims to make the world a better place as an independent bookstore.

Locally owned, independent businesses pump money back into their communities through taxes, payroll, and purchases. That means more money for healthy schools, green parks, strong fire departments and smooth roads, all in the area.

Independent bookstores have always occupied a special place in communities. Through Writing Career – readers will find reliable, bookseller-curated reading options, newly discovered writers, and a real choice for shopping.

Writing Career allows indie booksellers to communicate this vital role they play in their local economies and communities. This will allow authors to show their commitment to Indians across the country, easily accomplished by connecting with thousands of indie bookstores through IndieBound.org. And this allows consumers to feel that their actions are part of a bigger picture – they know their decisions are changing and others are working for the same goals.
