Wondering about new opportunities in the literary world? This event will bring together veteran literary agents in growing genres such as cookbooks, fiction, and YA, to talk about the latest trends in their fields and any wish lists they may have. We’ll start in a main room with introductions, then participants will have the opportunity to join two rounds of small-group breakout rooms with the agents of their choice. We’ll all come away with a deeper understanding of the growth areas in publishing and how our skills might fit into them.
The full agent lineup will be announced shortly. This event will be co-hosted by WMG members Elisa Ung and Sally Ekus.
All proceeds from this event support the Women's Media Group Educational Foundation.
Refunds available up to 24 hours before the event. No refunds for cancellations made within 24 hours of the event.

Don’t we all want to achieve success and inspire others we admire and respect to do the same? Betty Ng, CEO, author, public speaker, and co-founder of the Asian American Authors Book Club, will introduce us to the Po-Ling Power framework—a decision, evaluation, and measurement tool that will help you set goals, stay focused, and analyze and make decisions. She will share real-life stories and applications from the book she co-wrote with her mother, Po-Ling, to demonstrate how different career and life journeys can benefit from this common approach to success. After one hour with Betty, you will be motivated and empowered to propel yourself, your community, and your organization to achieve your goals by focusing on what matters.

The 50th Anniversary Gala will be a very special celebration bringing together members, friends, WMG scholars, and supporters of women in media to celebrate 50 years of Women's Media Group! It will include an awards ceremony honoring women who embody WMG’s values of community, diversity, and women’s empowerment; a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres; and a silent auction to fundraise for the WMG Educational Foundation, which is central to our mission to provide women with educational opportunities and financial assistance at all stages of their careers.
Since it was founded in 1974, WMG has focused on supporting women pursuing careers in publishing, journalism, and all areas of media. Over the past five decades, our New York-based nonprofit has brought together women in media to collaborate with, learn from, inform, and mentor one another. Together, we seek to advance the position of all women through the power of communication and media.
We hope to see you on March 25th to commemorate this significant milestone! If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation, click here.
