Forget everything you know about Social Media. This seminar goes deeper, equipping you with the tools and the knowledge you need to use any social media platform to reach your specific goals. No more random, blind posting.
Are you stressed and confused about keeping up with Social Media? Are you feeling like it’s something you have to do, but the mechanics and the lack of direction are just too overwhelming? Where do you fit in a world overloaded with visual information?
This workshop is not about tips and tricks for how to better use hashtags, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. It’s about helping you to develop a personal foundation and strategy that works for you.
This 2-hour seminar (with time for questions and discussion) will help you
— Understand the foundations of efficient communication and how that can help you stand out from the crowd;
— Leverage several social media platforms to maximize your content’s reach and what to do with the attention

Panelists Mary Boone, Curtis Manley, and Ellie Peterson join SCBWI WWA’s nonfiction coordinator, Lisa L. Owens, for a conversation about the many dimensions of creating science books for young readers. We’ll take a look at each guest’s featured book (all three fall under the broader topic of the solar system/planets) and examine different approaches to homing in on a specific concept and crafting form, tone, point of view, and more.
