This post announces a course offered by two SDWEG members, not by SDWEG, and is provided as a benefit to them as Guild members and for information to other Guild members. For information about the course, see the email address at the bottom of this post.
SDWEG members and professional writers, JR Strayve and Tamara Merrill, are offering an, in-depth, 8-week marketing class. Most writers do not like to market--but we must. It is essential that writers learn basic marketing skills.
This class, MARKET YOUR BOOK: Give Life To Your Plan, will cover what you need to know about marketing and give you the skills you need to accomplish the necessary tasks. Using a variety of techniques, including informal lecture, hands-on-tasks, Q & A sessions, guest experts, and videos, you will learn what you need to do, when you need to do it, and how to do it.
Each participant will construct a comprehensive, personalized task calendar. This calendar will provide an on-going marketing plan, a plan that will be unique to each writer. No matter where you are in your writing process, marketing is the key to sales and it is never too early, or late, to begin.
Classes are limited to 18 participants. The classes are held at San Diego Writers, Ink in Liberty Station, on Thursday evenings beginning January 16, 2020.
