Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP) 2016 Fall Kickoff Gala: Future of Publishing
The wait is almost over for the Chicago Women in Publishing’s (CWIP) 2016 Fall Kickoff gala on Wednesday, September 21! Everyone is invited to join us to learn more about CWIP, our upcoming 2016-2017 programming year and help us celebrate our local publishing community. After a summer hiatus, the Fall Kickoff is CWIP’s biggest event of the year and always features an exciting speaker.
This year’s speaker, April Eberhardt, is a world-recognized and self-described “literary change agent” who is leading her clients through the changing landscape of publishing, and she’ll be sharing her wisdom and experience about the future of publishing with us. We are fortunate to have Eberhardt because she divides her time between San Francisco, New York, and Paris, but will be in Chicago specifically to join CWIP for the Kickoff. You won’t want to miss this dynamic speaker!
The annual Fall Kickoff is a great opportunity for CWIP members to connect or reconnect and for anyone interested in publishing to network and make new friends. Corporate partners and sponsors will also be on hand for networking and to answer your questions.
The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and a free wine, beer, or soft drink, along with a raffle ticket for a one-year CWIP membership and other publishing goodies. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased that evening.
