Writers, Publishers Gather for The Chicago Literati Networking Event

Thumbnail image for (1).jpgHave a novel to pitch? Copy editing skills to flaunt? Break out your biz cards and polish your pearlies. The quarterly Chicago Literati Networking Event, hosted by Kaye Publicity, welcomes writers, booksellers, publishers and media professionals to the Goose Island Brewery (1800 N. Clybourn Ave.) on Tuesday, October 8 from 6-9pm.

Wondering exactly who composes the Chicago Literati (and if you're one of them)? The event website makes it clear: "If you live in Chicago and you're involved in the written word, you are a part of Chicago's Literati."

Publicist and owner of Kaye Publicity Dana Kaye says she started the networking nights because many writers she encountered weren't aware of Chicago's vast literary community.

"I put on these events to bring people together and out of isolation," Kaye says. And bring people together she does. A graduate of Columbia College Chicago's fiction writing department and a native Chicagoan, Kaye (and her team) represents authors in several genres, 30 percent of which are Chicagoans.

Featured attendees at the October 8 event are novelist Sophie Littlefield and freelance writer, editor and storyteller Molly Each.

Registration is $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Drink specials and appetizers will abound. The first 30 people to register will receive a swag bag. Now go out and get connected!
