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 Twitter. (The session on 11/14 will
focus more on Facebook and LinkedIn.) 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.
