May 23 Meeting: Social Media And Literary Citizenship

Our May meeting focuses on using social media to make more authentic connections on a variety of social media platforms. Social media is not merely a sales tool; it’s an opportunity to find loyal readers, word-of-mouth advocates, and a sense of place in the community. Lori A. May will cover personable marketing strategies, platform development, and audience outreach to help you connect with your ideal audience.
