Canceled: Careers in Publishing Panel

Hilda and Michael Bogomolny Room

This event has been canceled. An announcement about rescheduling is expected soon.

Do you dream of a job in publishing? Don't miss the chance to hear from three young professionals who have made that dream a reality. An editor, a publisher and a literary agent (two of whom are UB MFA alums) will discuss their career paths and answer your questions. The panel will be followed by "speed-dating" sessions where you can meet with the panelists one-on-one and pitch your book idea.

This event is made possible by the Klein Family Fund.
