IWOC Meeting | Convention Writing Opportunities

  • Gratz Center (Room 4F), 126 E. Chestnut Street, Chicago


Registration is closed
Did you know that your home metropolitan area offers built-in writing opportunities? We mean besides penning exposes on political corruption!

By virtue of living in or near one of earth’s great convention cities (Chicago), you can turn your talents into work covering conventions.

Join us as IWOC member Jeff Steele, a grizzled veteran of the trade show trenches, explains the nuts and bolts of why to seek convention writing opportunities, how to get work, and how to leverage one convention into an ongoing series of assignments—and how to turn any nearby conference center into a profit center into a personal profit center.

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. And all attendees are welcome to join us afterward for a buy-your-own dinner at nearby Tempo Café!
