TWITTER INTENTSIVE FOR WRITERS
Margaret Atwood, Stephen Fry, Bill Simmons and Oprah Winfrey are all doing it. There are fifty million people on Twitter and many of them are writing and publishing folk. Writers send out sample chapters, get writing tips and find agents and publishers, all on this new, haiku-like platform.
This single, three-hour workshop is designed for writers who’d like to start tweeting. You will open an account, write your profile designed to attract followers, follow other relevant tweeters, link your account to your Facebook page (if you have one), learn how to compose effective tweets and grow your platform, and send your first tweet.
