At my writing group's Visioning Day on September 14th, there was an overwhelming desire to learn more about social media, so I volunteered to teach ARWA's very first online class on that topic!
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR WRITERS 101
This class runs from October 1 through to the end of November.
I will lead the class through the basics of creating a blog, a Facebook page and a Twitter account. You do not have to be published to participate. However, this is a hands-on workshop, which will require everyone in the class to share their questions, experiences, and post their progress on the forum, so we can all learn from and support one another.
Although this is considered an introductory class, some computer and internet knowledge is required. (This FREE class is only open to ARWA's 2013-14 members.)
To sign-up for the class, please contact me prior to September 28th (You should have received a notification from ARWA with my email, however, you can also contact me through the email address on the Contact Me page of this site). You will receive further information about signing into the online forum closer to October 1st. (You may have to watch for the email notification in your email account's spam / junk folder.)
I've never taught an online class before, so this could be a bit of a learning curve for all of us! I'm excited to start, though, and I think it'll be a lot of fun!
For those of you who are experienced with blogs, Facebook and Twitter - what words of wisdom do you think I should share? Is there anything you wish you'd known when you first started?
