Dec 14 meeting: Holiday Networking Blitz

  • Wednesday, December 14, 2011
  • 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Brentwood Community Center

“Speed Dating” and “Speed Interviewing” are popular ways to help folks meet others who share their interests, or to find the right employment fit. At the SLPA’s December meeting, we’ll take that fun and fast-paced concept and turn it into a great way to meet fellow authors and other publishing pros to share ideas on our book projects.

Whether you have an idea for a book, the finished product, or are somewhere in the publishing process, this meeting is an excellent way to meet the right folks to move your project forward. We welcome writers, editors, graphic artists, printers, book coaches, marketing gurus, and creative souls to join the conversations.

Our meeting will include tips on how to get the most out this networking blitz, holiday treats, and door prizes. Be sure to bring along business cards, flyers, and book samples.
