Don't miss our WNBA-DC's annual spring brunch! It's a time to reconnect with old friends, make new friends, enjoy delicious home-cooked food, and relax. If you're not a member of the chapter yet, you're still welcome to join us at the brunch (and we hope you become a member at the brunch so you can stay informed of upcoming events). After everyone has had a chance to eat, we'll gather for a round robin, when each attendee has a chance to share her recent success, job hunt, project, publication, etc. We'll also hear from Chapter President Tabitha Whissemore about the WNBA National Meeting taking place the following week.

It's $10 at the door OR bring a dish to share with everyone. The chapter provides the cutlery, dishes, and beverages. If you bring a dish, please also bring an index card listing the ingredients so those with dietary concerns will know what they can eat.


More on WNBA Upcoming Events

WNBA/Washington hosts monthly events for Washington, D.C. metropolitan area professionals in publishing and allied fields. Held between September and June, our events, workshops, and programs provide opportunities for networking and professional growth. Monthly programs address topics of interest to our members, from the craft of writing and the business of publishing to professional development, freelancing, and literacy promotion. Programs are organized by members of the chapter board, specifically the program co-chairs, as well as other member volunteers. WNBA also offers small-group gatherings that meet regularly throughout the year for informal networking and socializing.
