Publisher/Freelancer Social Hour

The Professional Editors Network and the Minnesota Book Publishers Roundtable are coming together for another joint happy hour! Whether you’re working in-house or freelance or are just interested in the publishing industry, join us at Cream & Amber in Hopkins to socialize and network. We welcome editors, proofreaders, publishers, writers, agents, indexers, marketers, designers, illustrators, production managers, and anyone else in the publishing orbit. You do not need to be a member of MBPR or PEN to attend.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will meet outside on the patio, weather permitting. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, or if you have been exposed to someone known or suspected to have COVID-19, please protect those around you by staying home. Masks are not required but are encouraged for those who prefer to wear them.

Nonalcoholic options are available. Light appetizers will be provided. See the Cream & Amber website for the bar and café drink lists and food menu.

RSVPs are not required.

However, you can help us estimate how many people will be coming by RSVPing below.
