IWOC Meeting | IWOC's ever-popular Writers' Roundtable

  • 14 Sep 2021
  • 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Gratz Center (Room 4F), 126 E. Chestnut Street, Chicago


We're back at the Gratz! What better way to kick off our first post-pandemic in-person meeting than with one of IWOC's famous Roundtables!

For years, our annual Writers’ Roundtable has been among the organization’s most popular programs for members and non-members alike. And with very good reason. Where else can you learn so much so quickly from other writers about topics of interest to us all? In any Writers’ Roundtable, those issues may range from getting paid more promptly to obtaining and keeping clients to how much to charge and much more.

The meeting room is divided into small groups or, depending on number of attendees, gather group therapy-like into one large circle. Anyone and everyone can talk about whatever's on their mind -- as it relates to their freelance writing business. Whether it's to get advice and/or lend your own hard-earned words of wisdom, come join us in a lively hour-long session and experience for yourself why the Roundtable is a perennial favorite!

Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m. Note: Our Annual Meeting and Board of Directors Elections will begin at 5:45, 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.
