Feb. 27: Building a Platform From Scratch with Jane Gari
Agents and editors are more eager to take on writers who have proven their self-promoting pre-contract. Platform building is about fostering relationships and meaningful interactions with your audience. In this workshop you’ll learn how to: create a following and gain public visibility; define your target audience and design platform outlets with them in mind; and network effectively. Gari has been published in print and online in literary journals, arts magazines, and blogs such as Writers Digest. Her memoir was published by Touch Point Press, and she is under contract with Alpha Books for a book in the Idiot’s Guides series. Meets Saturday, 10-4 pm. $75/ $70 Workshop members.
