Letters from the Program Director: Twitter Can Be Scary

Hello, writers!

One of the most common things I hear folks wonder about is the importance of social media on the path to publication. If you were at our Agents & Editors Conference, you know our Keynote Speaker Courtney Maum said you don’t need a large social media following to become a successful author and that is absolutely true. But you may have also heard the conflicting advice that a robust social media platform will only help you in the long run, from catching an agent’s eye to reaching readers, there are a lot of positives to being online.

Whether you’re just getting started or not, you may want to keep in mind that while every platform has something special to offer, but Twitter happens to be the literary community’s favored platform. If you want to learn how to not only use Twitter to promote your writing life but to also connect with the literary community at large, we’ve got the class for you.

Join Richard Santos for How to Make Twitter a Writer’s Best Friend” on Wednesday, October 20. He’ll walk you through everything from the basics of tweeting to how to enter pitching contests with agents and editors, and more. You’ll walk away with the tools you need to make your Twitter your best friend.

All the best,
Sam Babiak
Program Director
