August 2018 Writing Show: Discoverability: Beyond Social Media
August 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5 – $15
Discoverability. That’s the key to securing book deals (fiction or nonfiction) and freelance gigs. That means making it super easy for agents, publishers, and editors to find you online and learn about what makes you marketable. We’ll discuss how and when to use branded platform materials, like TIP sheets, PR, and media kits. We’ll even provide a handout of suggested tips and outlines to help you get started, so new writers can build a plan of action beyond mere social media.
Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm (Meet & Greet at 6:00; program starts at 6:45)
