Minnesota publishers, writers, and editors will rub elbows, shake hands, and get some good ol' face time at the annual Minnesota Magazine Mingle. Love will be in the air at this year's casual networking event, as designated matchmakers will be wandering around ready to hear what each person is looking for. They'll then use those requests to match people. Writers can also participate in Editorial Speed Dating, during which they'll get to know and check compatibility with more than 10 magazine editors. When not looking for a match, participants are also invited to peruse the stacks of regional magazines, or take note of the magazine mastheads located throughout the venue. So whether you're a freelance writer looking for new options or an editor searching for fresh talent, the Mingle is a great event to forge new professional connections. Writers, polish up those résumés, and don't forget to pack your business cards. There will also be door prizes, light refreshments, and a cash bar.
