My Panel at AWP: Social Media, 3/3, 9AM, Hilton

Here’s information about the panel I’ll be on during the AWP conference.  Don’t let the early morning Saturday time slot scare you…instead let it inspire you, and come join us directly from your Friday night revelries!  You can always sleep on the plane ride back home.

Connecting With Readers Via Your Website and Social Media
Michele Wolf, Kim Addonizio, Paul Lisicky, Leslie Pietrzyk, Matt Bell

Having a vibrant, user-friendly Web presence—via your own website (supplementing a publisher’s and/or employer’s page for you), blogging, Facebook, and other social media—has become a key asset for engaging readers and students, being part of the conversation, and expanding interest in your work. Learn how to create an appealing, fun-to-click site that best represents your books and passions, what resources and social media contact readers most appreciate, and what pitfalls to avoid.

Saturday, March 3
9:00 AM to 10:15 AM
Boulevard Room A,B,C, Hilton Chicago, 2nd Floor


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
