The rise of new media is rocking the ground beneath us, affecting the bottom line of industries like publishing, journalism, advertising and public relations, not to mention numerous major brands. That?s why Media Tectonics?a soon-to-be-launched subsidiary of 4M Associates?is presenting a series of workshops on publishing, social media and online technologies designed to:

? reveal the best ways to navigate the new landscape and save you time;
? explore ways to create multiple (and passive) streams of income where possible; and
? supply the support, mentoring and inspiration you need to do your best work yet, in
whatever new media outlet suits your talents and expertise.

Tectonics is from the Greek "to build." Media Tectonics is committed to helping you build both a successful career and multiple sources of income with the words you use. Stay ahead of the learning curve and get prepared for what's coming next!

Our two tasty ?Combination Plate? programs for October 26 are:

Plate 1
Using Facebook, Twitter and Social Media to Drive Your Publishing Projects

Writer, community organizer and serial restaurateur Lauren Shannon will show you how to promote yourself and your projects online using Facebook, Twitter, and other forms of social media. Lauren loves new media and the Internet, and has launched several vibrant new communities online. One of those communities, The Tokyo Writer's Salon, now boasts over 250 poets, fiction writers, essayists, bloggers and screenwriters. Lauren wants to make this session interactive, so come bearing questions.

More about Lauren: Lauren?s day job is running To the Moon and Back, a small Tokyo based restaurant and catering company, as well as the new Kimono Wine Bar in Nishi- Azabu. Along with her passion for fabulous food and wine, Lauren loves to write. She regularly contributes feature pieces and columns to various magazines in Japan, published a book in 2007 called The Inside Guide to Harry Potter, and also collaborated with a team of writers on the latest edition of The Culture Series Survival Guide in Japan.

Plate 2
Rich New Media?Doing It Yourself and Doing It Right

Writing and publishing online using podcasting and other rich media that incorporate audio and video is becoming a lot easier?and utterly essential to snaring people?s attention. Terri MacMillan of Modern Media Japan knows how to do it. Terri and MMJ produce, distribute and promote targeted, syndicated audio and video programs via the Internet for subscribers of iTunes and similar services. MMJ also produces standalone
shows for websites, presentations, trade shows, and anywhere people or companies need to tell their stories. Terri will lay out the cool tools, tricks and tips you need to know to integrate online audio and video elements into your business, projects, publishing and promotions.

More about Terri: Terri was born in Harlem, New York, where she attended the High School of Music and Art as a voice major. She later spent ten years managing business affairs for CBS Records International, was director of administration for Prince?s Paisley Park Music for another two, and then director of sales for Kampo Cultural Center. Terri moved to Japan to co-manage Pizzicato Five. She handled the group?s international
career, including signing them to Matador Records and getting their music into commercials and films outside of Japan. Terri has also worked with artists such as Laurie Anderson, Boom Boom Satellites, Asian Kung-fu Generation, Hisaishi Joe, GAO, Feed (produced by Lenny Kaye), and Kayoko.
