Visible Writers: Marketing and Promotion for Authors

Now you see me.........

The Business of Writing 3: 
Now you see me – how writers can stay visible

Saturday 10 May, 2014.  10am-4pm at 
Canterbury Christ Church University

Bookings are now being taken for my next Canterbury Saturday school on May 10th.  It's all about marketing and promotion for writers.  As well as being a published writer for nearly 40 years, I've also been in the marketing profession for more than half that time, so I have plenty to share with other writers.  

With more opportunities than ever before for writers to get their work out to a public readership, how do you stay visible? Is an author also a brand?  And what does this mean for a writer? How do you promote yourself?
We will explore ways writers can stay visible, including author websites, book trailers, blogging and blog carnivals, social networking, book signings and launches, readings, interviews, visits, getting reviews, and ways to showcase your work. What is most effective?  We will also look at creating a personal promotion plan.

All Day Schools cost £27.50.  

To book please contact April Doyle via email to education.communityarts@canterbury.ac.uk 
or by phoning 01227 863451

    1. Thanks Paul, although sadly CCCU have cancelled as they need 11 enrolled to run a course. They plan to rerun it in March 2015!
