An in-depth class for authors who have self published a book but would like to dive deeper into the details of release strategy, marketing, and diversifying your writing income.

Congrats! You’ve self published a book, but how do you find readers? In this class for authors who already know the basics of independent publishing, we will cover:

  • Fine-tuning your retailer sales page to attract buyers.
  • Executing a successful book launch
  • Gathering fans for your newsletter, social media, and ARC teams
  • Using free and low-cost marketing strategies
  • Maximizing bigger marketing budgets with paid ads
  • Diversifying your income streams with multiple ways to package and sell your book
  • Rescuing a book that isn’t selling

TAKE THIS CLASS IF: 

  • You have released one or more self published books, but you’re not sure how to market them.
  • You already know the basics of self publishing, and you are ready to expand into deeper strategies of marketing and building a long-term career.
  • You want to work toward becoming a full-time author.
  • You’ve started your self publishing journey, and you are ready for the next steps.

The deadline to register for this class is Friday, May 12 at 5:00 PM CT.

HOW WLT CLASSES WORK:

Our classes offer a combination of lecture and practical exercises, determined by the individual instructor, on focused aspects of the craft and business of writing. Your fellow participants will come from a range of writing experience, from beginners to people with MFA degrees and published books. WLT instructors, participants, and administrators all work together to create a welcoming, supportive environment.

If you haven’t taken a class with us in recent years, feel free to email WLT Program Director Sam Babiak at sam@writersleague.org if you’d like to discuss whether our programming is the right fit for your needs.

HOW ONLINE CLASSES WORK:

Once you register for the class, you’ll receive an email with detailed instructions no later than 48 hours before the class date. You should expect 2-2.5 hours of direct teaching and 30 minutes of Q&A (for three hours total). If you need to leave the class early or can’t attend the class on that date, all registrants will have access to the recording for one month after the class date. No microphone or camera required, just an Internet connection capable of streaming video. All online classes are hosted on Zoom. To learn more about how Zoom works, click HERE.
