I’m very excited to be giving a one-day workshop on writer promotion at this year’s Women’s Words in Edmonton. It’s the program’s 20th anniversary this year, and the line-up is looking stellar!
Here are just a few of the instructors/sessions:
- Caterina Edwards and Jean Crozier invite you to “Dive the family treasure trunk!”
- Shirley Serviss will be wearing her walking shoes while students “Write Downtown”
- Judy Schultz tells you to “Write what you know” as she shares her creative nonfiction techniques
And here’s the blurb for mine:
Gone are the days a writer can afford to work in isolation. Now, each author—whether with a traditional publisher or going “Indie”—faces pressure to be their own promoter, online and in real life. Learn to make the best use of precious time and money. Come away knowing: the difference between marketing and promotion; how to identify your promotional personality strengths (and challenges); the most important online tools, and one “sin” to avoid for each. You’ll select an online and “analog” tool to immediately integrate into your promotional strategies.
Hope to see you there!
