Upcoming CWIP Events:

2015 Fall Kickoff: Making Connections in Publishing

Join Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP) on Wednesday, September 16 as we kick off our 2015–2016 programming year. Learn about the exciting programs we have in store for CWIP and enjoy a fun evening with author and humorist Bull Garlington, who is guaranteed to entertain you with his talk on Humor and Creativity. Garlington understands that using humor and creativity can get you into good situations, out of bad situations, and—if you’re lucky—help to make your job fun. Both humor and creativity are the most effective means of building strong and lasting connections both professionally and personally, and they are your best tools for recovery when faced with a potential disaster.

Visit with old friends, make new connections, and get involved with the vibrant publishing scene in Chicago!
