I presented this at the Surrey International Writers Conference on Thursday October 24, 2013.
Your Creative Platform: Build Your Own Website with Wordpress
The most powerful way to market and promote your own writing is with a personal website where you control the content. Whether you're an established writer working with traditional publishers or you're engaged with the new possibilities of self-publishing having a website is essential. And it's easier than you think. In this hands-on class, learn how to create your own site, develop a simple social media strategy using channels like Twitter and Facebook to own and share your writing while building your fan base. Agents and publicists love writers with a developed digital presence. Now's the time to learn for yourself. Bring your laptop if you have one or something to write on if you don't!
