The Indie Author Legacy Awards (IALA) is the only of its kind, honoring modern impact-centered writers, who serve as unsung heroes within our communities. This monumental event was designed to specifically celebrate non-fiction literacy geared towards the promotion of social awareness, education and personal transformation. Our mission is to recognize the courage and efforts of writers who use their gift of writing as a tool to develop community empowerment, business ownership and generational wealth-building.
In June 2016, our inaugural ceremony gathered over 150 national independent authors, bloggers, entrepreneurs and advocates. While the focus of the event is to celebrate indie writers, we’re also celebrating our unity as a community to make a significant impact through our legacy.
We invite you to join us!
