At Ronda Birtha's workshop Saturday, May 14, 10:30 AM
Ronda will teach writers and poets the best way to promote themselves and their writing with social media, the hottest promotional tool available today. Using Facebook and Twitter and blogging to stay in touch with family is completely different from using these forms to market our work.
"I have all these boxes of books in my basement. What should I do next?"
One of the biggest mistakes writers make is waiting until they have published a book to begin building their online platform.
Whatever you write, having an online presence is important. Editors go online and check out writers. What will they see when they look for you?
Why Ronda Birtha
We invited Ronda Birtha to teach at Writers Circle in Hayesville, NC after hearing of her qualifications. She is a folklife documentarian and freelance new media artist residing in Marble, North Carolina. She is a photography and videography instructor with the Community Folklife Documentation Institute sponsored by the NC Arts Council, and the Project Manager for Mountain Work: A Social Commentary – a documentary partially funded by the North Carolina Humanities Council that is being developed with Tri-County College in Murphy, North Carolina.
She is also a partner in the publishing companies, Galactic Publishers and Writers’ Hub of the Mountains. She teaches a number of writing courses and provides consultation for independent authors who are seeking to self-publish. In the five or ten minutes that she has for herself in the course of a day, she continues to work on her first novel – Solace.
Samples of her photography and videography can be seen at http://www.rondabirtha.com/.
