With Journalist and Social Media Pro Karen Kefauver
(Focus: Facebook & LinkedIn)
you are a published author, working on your memoir, or starting a
blog, you need readers, reviewers, agents and editors to find your
work. In this workshop-style class, Karen will explain how online
social media tools can take your writing to the next level. Primarily,
the focus will be on the use of Facebook and LinkedIn. (The sessions on
10/3 and 11/14 focused on Twitter; it is recommended that today’s
participants have attended this earlier session though it is not
mandatory.) Leverage these sites to sell yourself and your writing
projects. You will leave with valuable tips and resources that Karen
has developed during her decade as a successful freelance journalist.
