What’s better than a great conference? A great conference that gives us an excuse to use vintage circus graphics! Back by popular demand is the Mediabistro Career Circus. The second annual confab on how to build a career in the shape-shifting, possibly imploding world of media and beyond is set for next Wednesday, August 4 at Comix in New York City. Repress the urge to perform your stand-up set (or at least keep it to your routine on new media business models—that’s bound to kill with this crowd) and settle in for “an immersive day of expert career guidance, peer support, and techniques for managing your career, whether you’re currently employed or hot on the job search.” Click here for all of the details and then mentally prepare yourself by perusing circusmuseum.nl, our favorite online collection of vintage circus posters.
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!
