BEA is in Chicago
« on: April 24, 2016, 08:32:23 PM »
BEA is in Chicago this year! I live around 45 minutes away from Chicago!

I'm wondering if that's something I can go to or for I have to be published/agented/an agent/published/etc.

Although I've heard it's rather not fun.

I'm pretty sure it's an industry event, but you could go to Bookcon. It's a bunch of signings and panels. If it was in NYC I'd try to go, unfortunately it's not this year.

Cool!

And yeah, I thought it was an industry only event.

But how cool is it to know a bunch of editors and agents are 45 minutes from where I live? lol

Oops, guess I was wrong. I was reading up on BEA and Bookcon last spring when it was in New York.
