If a writer pens something in the woods and no one is around to read it, does it make a sound? No. No it does not. Marketing your work is essential to building an audience. Whether you want to get more people to read your words, describe yourself more distinctively on your website, or simply answer the question “What do you write?”, you need to know how to talk about your work in a way that sets you apart from all of the other writers out there. Get inspired to share your work as we talk about the basics of self-marketing from social media to websites to that ever-important elevator pitch. This workshop will strengthen your voice and build your confidence. Guaranteed.
