Two Steps Forward: 2015/2016 CWIP Fall Kickoff

By Aleisha Gardner on Tuesday, September 8, 2015

It is the most exciting time to be a CWIP member! You have already taken the first step toward launching your career goals and ambitions by doing a bit of Internet browsing on our website. Whether you are a student interested in editing, freelancing, writing, or proofreading; an experienced author, publisher, or writer; or a professional looking for an educational support network, you have landed in the right spot.

Chicago is a major hub for academic, book, educational, digital, medical, local, professional, and association publishing. The career possibilities are wide-ranging and encouraging if you live in Chicago and the surrounding area. At CWIP, we look forward to assisting you with your publishing goals by providing networking events, mentor matching, educational workshops, and exclusive member job listings (Shhh!).

The best advice in publishing that I can give is to seize the day. I truly believe, like Oprah Winfrey classically stated, “Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity." Preparation may mean mean exploring Chicago’s publishing scene, attending events, subscribing to blogs, or connecting with experienced professionals in the field.

Naturally, your next step is to become a CWIP member. And lastly, here is the information that you have been waiting for…
