10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Getting Clicks: Online and Social Media Display Writing

Kim will share the latest research on how to craft headlines and social media posts that generate clicks--and are consistent with your brand's tone and voice.

12:30-1:30 p.m. Lunch - you'll need to pay separately if you're only registered for 1 session

1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Building Better Stories for Editors

Kim will cover generating story ideas, formulating story packages (including online components), matching writer to story, assignment notes, giving feedback--and what to do when things go off the rails.

Both sessions will be interactive with lots of opportunity for questions and problem-solving.
