The Art of Writing for Social Media: Pro Entertainment Writers Help You Rock Your Online Posts.
Social Media requires compact communication where every word counts. Many of us are good at content curation or even longer-form writing but not great at turning a snappy phrase. Some of us are good at packing keywords for search engines, but not so good at getting humans to care or click. This panel will help you learn how to craft clever, dynamic posts that grab people's attention and build your brand.
We've assembled a panel of veteran professional writers who have a knack for crafting killer short-form post. They come from the ranks of television writing, movie marketing and producing.
