Workshop: Unleashing the Power of Social Media for Writers and Illustrators, with Greg Pincus
Saturday, June 16, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CDT)
San Antonio, TX
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.
Want detailed, expert guidance on your social media approach? Attendees may sign up for a private, 20-minute consultation with Greg for an additional fee.
