The Chapter Twenty-One Conference team is extraordinarily excited to announce our next speaker for the 2019 Chapter Twenty-One Conference: Sales Strategy Coordinator for Macmillan Publishers, Gretchen Fredericksen!
Gretchen Fredericksen is from a small town in New England with a population roughly equivalent to the number of windows on the Empire State Building (hint: it’s 6,500). She earned a BA and MA in English from Boston College and currently works as a Sales Strategy Coordinator at Macmillan Publishers where free books are plentiful and fangirling is highly encouraged. When she’s not talking about them at work, Gretchen enjoys reading more books at home, on the subway, anywhere she can find a green space in the concrete jungle, and even during quiet moments in the Soprano section of rehearsals with the Cecilia Chorus of New York.
Gretchen will be speaking on the young publishing panel at Ch21Con, in which young publishing professionals will discuss the non-writing side of the industry.
