Come Editors! Come Writers! Register for the 10th Minnesota Magazine Mingle!

Escape the cold on January 31 for this annual networking event at the Loft.

It’s so heart-warming in the depths of winter to see proof of our vibrant publishing community at Open Book, where writers and editors come together each year to network and celebrate the wealth of publications Minnesota has to offer.

Sponsored by the Minnesota Magazine and Publishing Association and the Loft Literary Center, this event provides our editorial community with a great opportunity to spend time with our colleagues, put faces to names, acquaint ourselves with our region’s publications, and marvel at the breadth of publications on display.

Last year the Mingle introduced Matchmakers, those ebullient ones in badges who helped editors and writers with similar interests find each other. The Matchmakers were so popular they’ll be back for a return engagement this year.

What’s new for 2013? Editorial Speed Dating! Editors from 10-plus magazines will host tables in one of the Loft classrooms, where writers can introduce themselves, exchange business cards, and walk away with the kind of connections that often turn into future collaborations.

The Magazine Mingle takes place on January 31, 2013, at Open Book, 1011 Washington Avenue South in Minneapolis. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be provided. Free parking is available at Periscope, 921 Washington Avenue South.

Supporting organizations for the event include the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), the National Writers Union (NWU), and the Professional Editors Network (PEN). Members of all these organizations receive the member registration rate.

Registration is open! Sign up early for reduced rates (including for multiple registrations).
