Join us at Women Opening Doors for Women and Hear from the Best on How to Get Published

WIN’s signature event, Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW) is always a night to remember. It starts with a reception, sure to have amazing speakers (not to mention delicious food and an open bar), and a chance to mingle and network with a room full of accomplished and inspiring women. The heart of the event though, are the dinners. Once the reception ends, everyone breaks out and goes to one of about 30 dinners, held all over the city. Invoking the spirit of WIN’s origin story, where women came together around a kitchen table, with the goal to help other women achieve their goals and provide a network that would only grow over the decades, the dinners offer attendees a a chance to hear from the best. The topics range from personal development to professional development, with a lot in between. This year’s dinners cover topics like health care, women in the military, the need for a National Women’s History Museum, and of course, our personal favorite: Turn Your Passion into Your Profession: Tips for Getting Published. This dinner, brought to you by your favorite Writing Group, will offer tips from published authors on how to take that book you’ve been working on and turn into a real, actual, published work. You know it’s your turn to be the featured author at Politics and Prose. So sign up for our dinner and get your writing career in gear.
