Both webinars are now full. Thank you to all who signed up. To those who weren’t able to sign up this time, I’ll be posting a recording after the webinar.
I found my job as editor at Matador Network because of Twitter. I won a grant from the Adobe Foundation because of Facebook. I organized a photography exhibition at a closed door restaurant in Buenos Aires because of Google Plus.
So I am a big believer in the power of social media to connect people, find work and create opportunities for publishing, editing and exhibition. Now, in conjunction with Cloudhead Art, an art and education NGO that uses social media to connect people with resources, I’ll be leading two free webinars for artists and writers.
Writers and artists are smart and savvy enough to know how important it is to represent our work online.At the same time, we don’t want social media to distract us from our work. This webinar is designed to focus on straightforward ways for developing a social media presence that brings eyes and ears to your art, short stories, poetry and photography in meaningful and useful ways.
What will the webinar cover?
We’ll start by talking about specific goals for your social media use. Then move on to discussing which of the social media platforms are best for those goals. Finally, we’ll talk about ways to to make connections via social media. Meeting other writers, finding publishers, agents and galleries, resources for self publishing and collaborating with other people.
