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.

If you are interested in working on any of these programs, we would love the help! Contact any board member to get involved.
