Calendar

This calendar includes all events that are directly related to IWOC membership, including regular meetings, co-hosted mixers, IWOC get-togethers (regional breakfasts and lunches), and board meetings—which any member in good standing may attend. And as a service to the community of Chicagoland freelance writers, it also includes non-IWOC events of interest to independent writers.

We're here to serve the cause of freelance writing.

If your organization is hosting or sponsoring an event that you would like to see posted on this calendar, simply fill out and submit our handy online Event Posting Request form. And if you have any questions regarding the process, please contact our webmaster.

    IWOC Meeting

    Compatible Part-time Careers

    Okay, so you like being an independent writer, but it doesn’t always pay all the bills, especially if you encounter a dry spell of no assignments. What to do?

    Join us at our June meeting, where an all-star panel of IWOC members will discuss part-time careers that are compatible with a writing career. Learn how the experience you gain elsewhere can open up niche markets for your writing talents and even lead to a book project.

    Come ready to share your own examples of sidelines that allow you to pursue your real passion—writing.

    Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m.

    The meeting is free for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

    All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.

    IWOC Meeting

    Working with Literary Agents

    Join IWOC-ers as a prominent literary agent from a Chicago-based agency offers practical advice for freelance writers on how to benefit by using the services of such professionals.

    Literary agent Abby Saul joined Browne & Miller Literary Associates in 2013, following five years spent on the production and digital-publishing side of the industry, first at John Wiley & Sons, and then at Sourcebooks. She describes herself as a zealous reader who loves her iPad and recognizes that e-books are the future—but, who “still can’t resist the lure of a print book.” And perhaps most importantly for IWOC members passionate about authoring books, she’s currently looking for “great and engrossing writing, no matter what the genre.”

    Abby is also actively exploring new digital possibilities for books. At IWOC’s upcoming July program, she will educate IWOC-ers and other attendees on these key items:

    • What literary agents do
    • Why book authors (including YOU) need an agent
    • How writers can get an agent to work with them

    Browne & Miller’s large list of clients includes both New York Times and USA Today best-sellers. Further, Abby says that at both Wiley and Sourcebooks, she helped establish e-book standards and led company-wide forums to explore new digital possibilities for books. A magna cum laude graduate of Wellesley College, Abby spends her weekends—when she’s not reading—cooking and hiking with her husband. You can find her by looking for @BookySaul on Twitter, she says.

    Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m.

    The meeting is free for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

    All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.
