Last year, the event featured a panel discussion on the new wave of creative energy that's helping to power the literary scene in Philadelphia. We were fortunate to have Athena Dickson, Emma Eisenberg, Lynn Rosen, Ariell Johnson, Blair Thornberg, and Nicole Amato. We also raised money for Western Philadelphia Alliance for Children. WePAC helps open shuttered libraries in schools in Philadelphia.
This year our event doubles-down on the professional networking vibe with a panel discussion from industry professionals on what it means to be "working in the publishing industry." Panelists will discuss work-life balance, industry problems, getting started, and growing as a professional. Our fund-raising efforts this year are for our students--we are asking for donations to the Student Experience Fund for students in the MFA in Creative Writing and MA in Publishing programs. This fund helps send students to conferences, coordinate events like this, and so much more. You can also support the fund by entering our raffle.
Doors open for early networking at 6pm. Dessert and coffee provided. The panel discussion starts at 7pm sharp. Networking after the panel from 7:45-8:45. As the event begins to wind down at 8:45, we will reveal the raffle winners.
