November 14th Western Slope Program

Author Platform 101 (This is not a Social Media Workshop): This workshop will give attendees a comfortable understanding of what an “Author’s Platform” is, and how it works, get you started with a business vision for your writing career, and have action items for building your platform. This presentation is perfect for an author who has some writing experience, but you need not be published or have made prior attempts to market your writing. Liesa will help you find a mission statement, set goals, profile who you want to market to, and measure your progress with a calendar. MORE INFO.
