DealMakers: A Speed-Networking Event From the League of Assistant Editors

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

handshakemanSpeed networking: Adult trade edition! Dealmakers is a fast-paced night of networking for young acquiring editors and young agents with clients: think 15+ lunches in an hour, minus the restaurant anxiety (“do I chew funny? I think I chew funny.”), plus a free drink. Bring a stack of business cards and be prepared to answer questions like “what is your dream acquisition” and “when we work together to publish a massive bestseller with strong backlist potential, what will that project look like?”

The next event will be Wednesday, January 15th at 7:00pm. Tickets are sold out, but you can still sign up for the wait list, which will put you at the top of the list for the next event. Admission is $15 and includes a drink (beer, wine, or seltzer) and 10% off all books that night; 100% of proceeds go to Housing Works’ mission to fight homelessness and AIDS. Hosted by the League of Assistant Editors. Registration required, so we can make sure there’s someone for everyone to make a lunch date with. REGISTER HERE.

Open to all editors of books for adults who can accept submissions and all agents with things to submit to adult editors. Please buy an “agent” or an “editor” ticket and let us know your age, where you work, and what you’re looking for with the ticket confirmation information. You will be seated according to those details. Please note: An event for editors of children’s books will be coming in the spring – any editors or agents specializing in children’s or YA will be refunded and added to the waitlist for the children’s book event)
