Writers and the Web: New workshop on Mar 2

Seems like artists in all media are using the web increasingly to market and distribute their work, through blogs, podcasts, YouTube videos, MySpace pages, and other social networking sites. Writers are using these tools more and more to find and build their audiences, and even to hone their craft. As a writer, how can you make these tools work for you?

Join us for our Writers and the Web workshop on March 2, 2-5 p.m., to learn how:

Location: Writers at Work, 4022 Fountain Ave., Suite 202, Los Angeles, CA 90029

Instructor: Bronwyn Mauldin

Cost: $25

Preregistration required: Send a check made out to Bronwyn Mauldin, to the address above

This workshop will provide a basic introduction to the key principles and tools you need to know, from how to post an article or comment, to managing your online identity, to building an audience online. We’ll also talk honestly about potential pitfalls, like spam, trolls, and how to keep a blog from taking over your life.

If you can, bring a laptop with wireless capability. We’ll explore many of these tools in class. By the time you leave, you’ll have started your first blog, wiki, podcast page or feed reader. (Don’t know what those are? Join us at the workshop to find out.)
