2012 Chicago Media Panel: Publicity
This panel will feature editors and producers from various Chicago-based media outlets and will focus on (1) what the editors/producers look for in considering book coverage; (2) the preferred methods for two-way communication; and (3) how the columns/programs are incorporating social media in coverage. The panel will be an opportunity for marketers in the university press community to "meet" Chicago media members and learn practical ways to pitch books to Midwest outlets.
