Social Media for Authors

It's Social Media Week and though there are few official events in Vancouver this year, it seemed like a good opportunity for us to get together and explore this controversial subject.

Get a group of authors together and mention social media... then listen for the groans! Yet it's a reality of 21st century publishing. Not only that, social media offers authors a more powerful way to reach fans and potential new readers than was ever before possible.

We'll look at the available social media and discuss the pros and cons of each, helping you to choose where best to use your available time... and what to do with it once you get there!

We'll be discussing:

* Pinterest, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, et all: which vehicle(s) is right for you and your message?

* How to balance writing time with promotion and social media time.

* When social media can aid in writing research. (Two birds. One stone!)

* How much value is social media really going to add?

And other topics of importance to authors struggling with social media: both how to do it... and why!

As always, there will be a strong networking component to the evening and even those not currently planning a book will have the opportunity for networking with other authors and asking questions of our resident experts.

Schedule of events:

6:30pm Sign in, name tags and networking

7:15pm Individual introductions

7:35pm Social Media for Authors: talk followed by discussion and Q&A

8:45pm Networking
