Upcoming classes: Social Media
THURSDAYS, OCT. 28th — DEC. 9th | One of the biggest challenges writers face is getting their work the recognition it deserves. You’ve been sending your work out—stories, articles, poems, plays—and you know it’s good work, but no one’s biting. You’ve applied for grants, travel scholarships, and writers’ conference funding, to no avail. You’d love to be invited to present work at Litquake or another high-profile reading series, or to read at a conference. You’d like to publish in literary journals that pay writers, and you’d like to start winning some writing contests. What’s the missing link? It could well be your online literary presence.
- Do you have separate social media accounts reserved and used exclusively for your life as a writer?
- Does your online presence offer evidence that you take your writing seriously, and view yourself as a literary professional, whether established or up-and-coming?
- When publishers, funders, fellowship committees, and grant panels view your profiles, will they think your presentation is polished? Will they feel your page shows signs of an upward trajectory in your literary accomplishments?
SATURDAY, NOV. 6th | Are you looking for a way to share your work with the world but have no idea where to start? Does the thought of reading your work in front of strangers terrify you? Are you a self published author looking for ways to promote your book? This class gives an overview of how to plan your perfect author event.
