Digital Tools: A Workshop for Writers & Editors


These days, digital "illiteracy" can be a deal-breaker for publishers—regardless of your manuscript's quality. Whether you’re writing for magazines or looking ahead to your next (or first!) book project, publishers expect you to know the ins and outs of digital promotion.

In this seminar, Omar Mouallem teaches magazine writers and book authors alike how to use social media to promote their stories and attract readers. As well, he explains how to store your work in “the cloud,” organize your queries and research using spreadsheets, track down the best professional development and networking websites, and use sweet software to stamp out distractions.

Join Omar for a workshop that is chockfull of digital tips and tricks.
