Our company’s mission is to give voice to relatively new yet talented writers whose work truly contributes to the greater good. We are excited by the fact that the number of self-published books now exceeds that of traditional publishers. As an independent book publisher, we put all of the pieces together for our writers by providing a variety of literary services, including editing, printing, cover design, and marketing. We work with our clients, and guide them through the entire publishing process. MPCA/NYC is an imprint and training division of EPI.
The EPI Advisory Board is tasked with guiding the development and growth of the company. Each member of the board has a wealth of experience in such areas as publishing, education, technology, human resource management, marketing, and law.
