Happy new year! How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday it was 1987. Then there were a few years after that which are a bit of a blur. And now suddenly it’s 2016. ALLEGEDLY.
It’s definitely summer here in Melbourne, anyway, and I’m just back from a week or so at the beach, reading Sherlock Holmes stories and getting sunburned. It’s an annual tradition.
So. Where were we? Ah yes.
I’m teaching a couple of new workshops for the good people at Writers Victoria this coming term.
First up, we’ll be unravelling the mysteries of Scrivener in an all-day class on 10 April. If you haven’t heard of it, Scrivener is software created especially for writers. I love it, and I’ll show you how to make the most of it too.
Then there’s a webinar on Online Marketing on 10 May at 6pm. We’ll talk about how to engage with readers online and create a public persona that supports writing practice but doesn’t (we hope!) sound like hard-sell advertising.
If you’ve never been part of a webinar before, it’s like a live web-based video workshop in which everyone can participate.
You can find details of both workshops here.
