Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP) is a paid trade organization you may join by clicking here: http://www.cwip.org/joinnow.html . Joining CWIP is much more cost effective than paying nonmember pricing for events. This page is simply the Meetup group for that organization, and while nonmembers may attend most CWIP events for the nonmember price, some events are CWIP-members only.
Don't let the name fool you. CWIP is not just for people in Chicago, it's not just for women, and it's not just for people in publishing. Please join us for one of our Wednesday night educational events and see what we're all about.
Chicago Women in Publishing (CWIP) is a nonprofit volunteer organization formed in 1972 for professionals in the publishing industry and allied fields.
Our purpose is to explore and improve the status of publishing professionals, to assist members in greater professional achievement, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. CWIP offers programs, services, and networking opportunities to advance publishing careers. Membership is open to women and men who support CWIP's goals. Our aim is to be Chicago's most respected source of publishing education, information, outreach, leadership, and career opportunities.
