April Meeting: Using Social Media to Market Yourself as an Author – a mini workshop
This meeting, by request, rather than having a guest speaker, we will be conducting a mini-workshop on this topic to assist you in publicising your books and writing online. Presented by Julie Boyd and Jeannie Barker.
There are an ever growing multitude of options available for author marketing which can be confusing to navigate. We’ll take a look at what social media channels you can use, identify what is most useful to your needs, and develop a custom mini marketing plan for you. Please make sure you bring a pen to complete the take home worksheet.
