BLOGGING OUT LOUD: How Reading & Reflection Improve Your Self-Published Work
8:30pm-10:30pm Monday, September 10th
As part of Writer’s Week 2012, Shoshana Martyniak and I will lead a free workshop session in strengthening one’s voice as a participant in the world of self-publishing. Want to participate? Select a short blog entry (under 500 words) that you like, but think needs some tweaking, and bring it to a Google Hangout to read and discuss with other authors.
Please make sure you have an account with Google+ and have tested at least one Google Hangout before the session Monday night. You will need a computer with video camera and microphone capabilities to participate. Some smartphones also support G+.
Schedule (All times EST):
8 p.m: Hangout Open.
8:30- 10 p.m.: Readings & Comments
10- 10:30 p.m.: Discussion/General Chaos
To register, email your blog entry to BloggingOutLoud@rlbrody.com along with your blog’s URL. If you don’t have a blog, submit any non-fiction piece under 500 words. Spaces are limited.
