On January 22, 2011, join me at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD for my two most popular classes:
Intro to Marketing Platforms
Getting published is hard, especially for a first-time author. Publishers want you to come with a platform and this workshop will discuss what a platform is and when to start building it. It will also give a brief overview of the tools available to writers for building a platform on the web, and discuss internet privacy and copyright. Participants will brainstorm what types of internet media might be right for them to use.
Saturday January 22, 2011 – 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM
Introduction to Blogging
This class will go into more detail about blogging. It will cover several blogging software options, the basics on how to set up a blog, how to post and how to insert images. Participants will get a feel for what sort of content should be included in a post, how to organize their content, how to invite comment and how to promote themselves on other people’s blogs. The class will brainstorm topic ideas for their own blogs.
Saturday January 22, 2011 – 3 PM to 5 PM
From my students:
“This was a very helpful introduction to an overwhelming topic—it does not seem as daunting now, to establish a platform and presence, as it did before I took the class.”
“Very clear, fun introductions. Kept on track. Would take more classes.”
“Angela is a wonderful instructor! This is not an easy topic to cover in two hours, but she did a wonderful job.”
