Mingle One Week Away: Have You Secured Your Place?

Time is running out to register for the annual magazine celebration.

Has the coldest weather in years got you climbing the walls?

Just in the nick of time, the Minnesota Magazine Mingle promises a night of warmth and festiveness at the Open Book in Minneapolis on January 31.

Aside from the obvious pull of spending the evening with like-minded colleagues from Minnesota’s publishing ranks, the food, prizes, cash bar, and free parking make the event simply irresistible!

The collaborative event sponsored by MMPA, and the Loft Literary Center is the season’s premiere place for editors and writers to match-up. Designated matchmakers—last year’s most popular addition—will work the floor helping writers find and meet editors that match their interests. Building upon this concept, the newest wrinkle for 2013 is the speed-dating room where more than 10 magazine editors will host tables for a portion of the event.

Editors representing Minnesota Medicine, Minneapolis St. Paul, Lake Superior, Rochester Woman, Specialty Fabrics Review, InTents, Fabric Graphics, Fabric Architecture, Marine Fabricator, Twin Cities Business, and Franchise Times amongst others will be present at the event and writer resumés submitted will be distributed to all publishers and editors that attend.

 So visit the event page to register , then print your resumé, grab some business cards, and get ready to mingle!

Writers and other freelancers: Email your resume to Jessica Elhard at Ampere! for distribution to all the editors and publishers in attendance.

The Mingle begins at 5:30 p.m. at Open Book, 1011 Washington Avenue South in Minneapolis, with free parking around the corner at Periscope, 921 Washington Avenue South. The annual event is sponsored by the Loft Literary Center and Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association. Reduced rates for members of MMPA, the Loft, ASJA, NWU and PEN.
