Do writers need to have a social media presence? Yes! Especially in 2022. However, social media doesn’t come naturally–or easily–to everyone. In this workshop, learn how to build a personal writing brand that is authentic to you and your work and sync it across multiple social media platforms. Learn how to use free post-scheduling programs, email marketing, and graphic design programs to create a beautiful online presence that will help your writing reach a wider audience. Dip your toes into Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and even Tik Tok; complete content-generating exercises to kick start your online presence, and feel confident promoting your work.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
