The New England Authors Expo is the largest grassroots literary event in New England. The NEAE has over 2,000 authors, illustrators, publishers, printers and other publishing professionals on its contact list. By working together we organize book sales and other book-related events throughout the year. We try to keep our fees as low as possible so that every author will be able to attend our events. This event is free to the public.

New for 2019:

This is our first year holding the NEAE at Northern Essex Community College. The space is smaller than last year, so we will have fewer spots available. Please sign up before all of the spots are taken. We will not have panels this year. However, we will have a few news things to try out. Please watch this page and our Facebook page for more details as they come in.

Also – All paying authors attending this event will receive a free copy of Rob Watts’ new book Book Signing 101: An Author’s Guide.


For the first time we will be having two ways to attend the NEAE.

The first costs $25.00 per spot. We have 16 spots available. These spots will be OUTSIDE on the courtyard. The authors will have to bring their own tables, chairs and 10’ by 10’ popup canopy. You cannot stake the canopy down, so you will have to bring sandbags or something to weigh them down. These spots are rain or shine. You are rolling the dice to get the lower price.

$25.00 Outside spot:

The second costs $50.00 per spot. We have about 50 spots available. These spots are INSIDE (in either the hall or the hallway). We supply the table and chairs. The table is 6 feet long. Because of the limited area for table space we are restricting each author to just one table.
