2011 Minnesota Magazine Mingle

 

An evening of casual networking for editors and writers

Don’t miss out on the Minnesota Magazine Mingle; your opportunity to connect with professionals from the magazine world in a casual setting.

Hosted by the Loft Literary Center and the Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association, the event will take place on January 27, 2011 at Open Book in Minneapolis, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

One of the event’s most popular features is the showcase of magazines, which exhibits the breadth of publishing in Minnesota.

Attendees will also have electronic access to:

• The list of magazine professionals that attended the event

• Writers’ résumés

• Editors’ insider information on how to write for their magazines

“This event is unique. As a writer, I take advantage of this casual networking and tell my students to do the same,” says Nolan Zavoral.

Galynn Nordstrom, senior editor at the Industrial Fabrics Association Intl., says, “Food, wine and editors … it’s probably illegal in some states. It’s a great location, we get to catch up with old friends and co-workers, find out how other publications are handling similar challenges, pick up some new ideas and meet some of the people who’d like to write for us. And I can see what kind of wines they like to drink, not that that makes any difference, of course.”

Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available. Discounts apply for early registration and for registering more than one staff member from a single magazine or organization.

 Co-sponsors include the America Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) and the Professional Editors Network (PEN).
