Just a reminder for Lorraine’s workshop on Saturday, January 12th at St Mark’s. Members only, 10am until 2pm-ish.
I’ve heard Lorraine talk on this subject before – this is a workshop you do NOT want to miss.

Published and unpublished writers alike can benefit from a basic understanding of online opportunities and how to start building their author platform. We’ll look at example and discuss ideas while reviewing the potential of websites, blogs, and social media. It’ll be a whirlwind tour! Come prepared to brainstorm your author platform.
