The folks at New York Festivals are putting on their annual “New York Show” beginning this Wednesday, May 1st at the New York Public Library (video from last year’s event above). Seeing as they sponsored our January AgencySpy party and all, we’re sending back a little lunchtime love and letting you know that the NYF currently has 40 tickets up for grabs for the two-day creative-focused event, which will include speakers such as Havas Worldwide CCO Jason Peterson, Saatchi & Saatchi worldwide digital CD Tom Eslinger and David Rolfe, head of integrated production at BBDO. If a bevy of creative speaking sessions as well as cocktail events, an Awards gala and other activities tickle your fancy, you can register here for a free ticket. Make sure to fill out all the fields and use the code 8888 to have at ‘em.
Taught by an editor at Alloy Entertainment, the goal of this class is to finish your YA or middle grade novel in 12 weeks. Starting on March 10, you will learn how to write a proposal that doesn’t end up in the slush pile, evaluate your story arc for a teen audience, get an agent (if you need one!), and more!
