Create Your Author Website (with Beth Winegarner)

Beth Winegarner

 

 

 

SATURDAY, APRIL 15  |  Every published writer should have a website where readers can go to find out more about you and your work, but not all publishers will set one up for you. Creating one for yourself might be intimidating, but the web offers a wealth of resources that make creating your own site easy — and even fun.

This three-hour workshop will cover the basics of setting up your author website, whether you’re working on a shoestring budget or you have a little money to spend. We’ll go through the following topics:

  •  How to set up your own web address
  •  How to choose a web host
  • Mapping out what you want on your site
  • How to integrate other social media, such as Twitter
  • The benefits and drawbacks of having a website versus a Facebook page
