Speed networking: adult trade edition!
Dealmakers is a fast-paced night of networking for young acquiring editors and young agents with clients: think 15+ lunches in an hour, minus the restaurant anxiety ("do I chew funny? I think I chew funny."), plus a free drink. Bring a stack of business cards and be prepared to answer questions like "what is your dream acquisition" and "when we work together to publish a massive bestseller with strong backlist potential, what will that project look like?"
Tickets are $15 and include a drink (beer, wine, or seltzer) and 10% off all books that night; 100% of proceeds go to Housing Works' mission to fight homelessness and AIDS. Hosted by the League of Assistant Editors. Registration required, so we can make sure there's someone for everyone to make a lunch date with.
Open to all editors of books for adults who can accept submissions and all agents with things to submit to adult trade editors. Please buy an "agent" or an "editor" ticket and let us know your age, where you work, and what you're looking for with the ticket confirmation information. You will be seated according to those details.
When & Where
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is one of downtown New York’s most vital cultural institutions, presenting an eclectic mix of events -- from readings and concerts to comedy nights and storytelling competitions – featuring many of today’s most exciting artists. The bookstore is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and 100 percent of its profits go to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training, and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. As an independent cultural center, it offers patrons a unique opportunity to join the fight against AIDS and homelessness simply by buying or donating books; eating at our cafe; coming to concerts, readings, and special events; or volunteering on our staff.
