Event Details

Workshop Description

Social media can be an incredibly powerful tool for a writer or illustrator. Whether it’s via a blog, a Twitter presence, being active on Facebook or anything else online, the opportunities exist for networking, promotion, creating community and so much more – but it’s not enough simply to be there.

Using case studies and exercises, we’ll home in on clear steps to take to develop concrete, reachable goals and a strategy to reach them based on your strengths and situation. And we’ll learn that it really is possible to unleash the power while still having time to live and work.

Registration includes workshop activities and lunch. Attendees may wish to bring a laptop, tablet, or smart phone to use during the workshop activities, but are not required to do so.


Private Consultations

**Your hosts in SCBWI-Southwest Texas feel this is such a great opportunity that our chapter will underwrite 50% of the cost of a consultation for the first 10 people to sign up for one. Be among these first 10 and pay just $20 for your consultation, in addition to workshop tuition. To take advantage of this special rate, choose "Workshop and Consultation (underwritten)" as your ticket choice.**
