MARKETING YOUR WRITING: Increasing Your Success

Monday, June 30, 2014
7:30 to 9:15 p.m. (networking follows the program)

Your writing will not sell itself. No marketing, no nothing, nada, zilch. Regardless of the enormous competition, there are numerous, often changing marketing opportunities, if you are savvy, creative, and energetic.

You need to know how.
You need to know where.
You need to know what’s new and creative.
You need to know how to do it inexpensively and time-efficiently.
You need to keep track of the ongoing changes.

For our yearly panel, we have assembled veterans, mentors who are experienced in those matters. Learn from them and resolve to put the time and energy into improving your marketing. Yes, everyone can benefit from improved marketing.

Resolve to put the time and energy into exposing your work to a larger market. We will cover as time allows: Blogging; Social Media; Press releases; Radio; Website management; Traditional methods; Hints, tricks, shortcuts, cost-savers; and more, including your questions.

IWOSC — Independent Writers of Southern California — provides writers of the greater Los Angeles area with several opportunities to get together with other writers each month. We have casual satellite get-togethers in various parts of Los Angeles including Orange County; we have a seminar most months, and a general meeting, typically a panel discussion, about a writing-related topic.

Many of our members are published professionals or professional writers of other sorts, while others are working on breaking into the professional writing scene. Some write books, others write for magazines, others do public relations….

If you’re a writer in the Los Angeles area or Southern California, at any level of your writing career, writing in any genre, we invite you to come check us out.

Here are my fellow panelists. Find out more. I hope to see you there!
