    The Annual Conference is a chance for Quaker authors and publishers to showcase their recent publications. We encourage members to post information about their books to the QUIP website by emailing Eric Muhr at ericmuhr@gmail.com and on the QUIP Facebook page.


    Are you a “publisher of Truth”? Are you a writer, a publisher, an editor, a translator, or a bookseller? Do you blog, produce videos, write songs, create websites, or manage social media for Friends?

    At QUIP we’re all united in sharing the Quaker message with the world. Join us for worship, fellowship, education, and mutual support.

    Sharing Our Faith With the World

    Quakers Uniting in Publications, begun informally in 1983 by a small group of Quaker publishers and booksellers, is now an international network of over 50 Friends organizations and individuals concerned with the ministry of the written word.
