Writers of prose and poetry know that it isn't always the quality of our writing that solicits the widest audience or establishes our reputation as writers, so much as it is the consistency with which we write and how we network with other writers. In this workshop, we will investigate the relationship between our writing, social media, and reaching audience members. We will explore how some of the most well-known writers cultivate a social media presence and discuss the dos and don'ts of cultivating our own.
