Marketing for Writers: Audience & Platform
Understanding one’s marketing options as a writer is critical to career longevity. Through readings, research, lecture, and discussion, this series of seminars will explore what marketing means for authors specifically; how to work within and outside the publishers’ marketing engine; and how to connect authentically with readers.
We will brainstorm and share ideas for how each student can implement these marketing tools into their own career. Students will come away from these seminars with in-depth strategies and ideas for embarking on their own marketing journey, no matter where they are in the publishing process.
In this session, we will discuss how writers can identify their key audiences, where they can reach them, and how to keep them coming back! This includes thinking about how and where readers get their information; marketing partnerships; outreach; and networking.
