CWIP’s Annual Publishing Fair returns this April!

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Our popular  yearly gathering of Chicago’s publishing professionals is back again this spring. We’re returning to our home at Roosevelt Center’s Congress Lounge on Saturday, April 13 and we're adding new and exciting exhibitors to your list of connections.

Join us in downtown Chicago for a Saturday of networking, professional development, and light refreshments. Gain exposure to some of the area’s most prestigious publishers and literary organizations while learning about what Chicago can offer to a professional like you. This year, the fair will be focused on a theme: Transitioning to Publishing, so whether you are looking to break into the industry or are an established editor, designer, author, organization, or agent, there will be ample opportunities to make connections and find new business partners.

In keeping with our theme, we are expanding our exhibitor list to include professional organizations and businesses that support those who are new to the publishing industry. Please follow us on social media or sign up to stay updated on our current exhibitor list.
