Priscilla Goudreau-Santos of Priscilla Goudreau Public Relations & Marketing will be a featured presenter during the Queens MFA Professional Development Weekend
Oct. 19-21. She will be joined by several Queens' alums, Angela Haigler and Tracy Crow, to discuss marketing, branding and social media for writers in the current environment. Some of the touch points will be:
What is “platform?” Is it important? How does it differ for writers of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry?
What are the basic steps of book publicity and how far in advance of publication should an author prepare?
What are the most effective publicity tools?
Do readings sell books? How should an effective reading be structured? Where should it be located?
What are the best social media platforms to use?
Does an author have to have a website? What should be on it?
What is the most effective way to engage online readers?
Goudreau-Santos will discuss these and other questions in upcoming posts. Have a question you’d like to ask? Send Priscilla an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
