Social Media for Writers
Facilitator: Annette Januzzi Wick and Guest Artist Bonnie Jean Feldkamp
Time: 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Open to: All Genders 18+
Do I need social media as a writer? How should I present myself as a writer on social media? Are there tips and tricks to develop a larger following for my work?
In this workshop Bonnie Jean Feldkamp, will answer those questions and more, as she discusses various social media platforms and strategies, and how a writer can harness the power of the platform to generate a wider audience for their words. The workshop will address Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blogging (content and sharing only). Participants will also come away with knowledge of how to begin building their online presence into a brand.
Facilitated by Annette Januzzi Wick, participants will use writing prompts to explore the message of their writing work, followed by instruction, and a question and answer period. Laptops welcome, as writers can review their online profiles.
Please note: In this workshop, we will not be covering the actual setup of a social media account, other than what pertains to the brand of the writer (ie naming, taglines, appearance).
