International Association of Self-Proclaimed Artists and Writers

IASPAW was formed on Friday, June 22, 2007, on a clear, sunny day in McLean, Virginia. IASPAW is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that offers Creative Souls. to display their creative work on this website.


IASPAW was founded on the premise that many talented artists and writers go unrecognized and unappreciated for their creative contribution to society, and thus, need a venue for artistic exposure to promote their continued contributions. IASPAW provides the venue and its credential comes from within, from one's feeling of creative self-worth. With support from a communion of fellow artists and writers in the same circumstance. This association aspires to foster a renaissance of artistic expression through self-proclamation to promote global harmony through the arts.

Our mission is to provide added recognition to self-proclaimed artists, writers, poets, photographers, musicians, and other creative souls; through worldwide exposure for their talent, renderings, and writings, which are often unrecognized and unknown to the public.
