Writers of the Riverbend: Mix and Mingle
Date To Be Determined
Readers and writers: Writers of the Riverbend's date is currently in flux due to COVID-19. However, we will be rescheduling just as soon as things return to some sense of normalcy. Sign-up will remain open during this time. I have been in talks with Maeva's (the venue) and we still plan to have it on a Saturday from 12:30pm-4pm 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Published or unpublished, all authors, poets, wordsmiths, editors, designers, illustrators, publishers, creators, and book lovers are welcome!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!
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.
