Writers of the Riverbend: Mix and Mingle
November 20, 2021

Readers and writers: WE ARE BACK IN BUSINESS BABY! The pandemic shook everything up, but we are finally going to be able to have the Writers of the Riverbend event! Not only will it still be a FREE event held at Maeva's Coffee on a Saturday, but we will be starting at 11:30am instead of 12:30pm - a whole extra hour to mingle! Can't wait to see you all!! It will be held in the hallway of Maeva’s Coffee (1320 Milton Road, Alton, IL 62002).

This is a FREE event.

Readers: Come support local authors and discover what works are being created right in your community!  Discover what's new in the area and find your new local favorite, or pick up another book from an author you discovered at a previous event!

Creators, industry professionals, students, and dabblers: Preregister for free space to sell and promote your craft!  Are you a creator, but don’t have anything to sell?  No problem!  You can still sign up without reserving a space.

Published or unpublished, all authors, poets, wordsmiths, editors, designers, illustrators, publishers, creators, and book lovers are welcome! Come connect with new fans, network with other creators, promote your projects, and be a part of the community!  All preregisters receive a bottomless cup for coffee or tea at the event, sponsored by Maeva's Coffee. Just fill out the form below!

Although we encourage selling your work, this isn't a "sit behind a table the whole time" kind of event.  If you are selling, we recommend bringing along a family member or friend who can help man your table while you browse and network.  Expect to make some GREAT industry connections and enjoy the afternoon! It's a creatives’ party!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up below!  And don't forget to RSVP to our Facebook event as well!
You will receive an email confirmation of your sign-up and some other helpful information within 24 hours of submitting your form.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of submitting your form, that means something went wrong.  Please fill out and submit another form ASAP if this happens.
