Instagram. Snapchat. Twitter. Facebook. Social Media outlets have grown exponentially since the good old days when instant-messaging our friends on AOL was just about the coolest thing ever. Now we collect friends, followers, and fans in order to share the best and worst of our daily lives and maintain relationships with hundreds of our “closest” friends and family. But there’s so much more to social media than gloating about those playoff tickets you scored, or wishing your friends the happiest birthday ever. In fact, social media platforms today are great tools for writers like you who want to build a loyal audience of readers eager to get their hands on your next book or story.

Find out how to create your unique brand and gather dedicated followers along the way in a FREE one-day seminar called Publishing and Promoting Your Work – and You – in the Age of Social Media. Offered by Jennie Nash, a Writers’ Program instructor and author of seven books, this 3-hour course touches upon the essential elements that all writers need in order to build an online audience of devoted readers.

Publishing and Promoting Your Work – and You – in the Age of Social Media
You’ve done the hard work of writing and rewriting. Take a moment and congratulate yourself! Now know that your work is far from done. Designed for fiction writers (all genres), essayists, and memoirists, this course covers finding an agent and the pros and cons of traditional versus self-publishing. It then focuses on answering a series of critical questions today’s writers face: How do you build a personal brand and online following? What kinds of Facebook and Twitter posts work (and don’t work)? How do you get in touch with bloggers to review your book, and who are the top bloggers? What are the pros and cons of writing contests and their impact on sales? How do you behave as a writer and give yourself the best shot at sustaining a career?

Jennie’s course is the fourth of four courses offered free this year as part of the Writers’ Program’s 50th anniversary celebration. Take advantage of this FINAL FREE offer and learn how you can use social media to bolster your writing career.
