Live in the Bay Area? I hope to see you at this SCBWI event! I’m excited to present on one of my favorite topics – Social Media!

  • ADDRESS: Town Center Community Room, 770 Tamalpias Drive, Suite 201, Corte Madera, CA 94925


Why should I engage in social media? What social media platforms are right for me? Where do I even begin to build up an online audience? How do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and blogs differ from each other and how can they be used in concert?

Many new authors are asking these questions, while published authors seek to expand their social media presence and leverage new tools. An online presence isn’t built overnight, but more publishers are seeking authors willing to engage with their audience in a digital space.

This presentation by YA Author and social media expert, Corrine Jackson, will break down the major tools of social media and how to begin to build your audience, even before you are published. Then we’ll discuss tools to use after you are published to leverage your presence and book visibility. You’ll learn about conducting a blog tour and what it means to your promotion efforts.

This program is for pre-published and published authors. This is an SCBWI meeting.
