The Writers’ Union of Canada (TWUC) is offering HOW TO BE YOUR OWN PUBLICIST, a professional development symposium for writers.

Whether you are an aspiring writer wanting to develop your audience before publication; an emerging writer who needs to stay visible; or long-published and looking for new tips and techniques, this full-day workshop is for you.

Authors Elizabeth Ruth and Ann Douglas will present on traditional but innovative book marketing strategies as well as new media opportunities for writers. Kelly Duffin, Executive Director of TWUC, will update participants on the latest evolutions in the publishing landscape.

The price of the workshop is $89.00 and covers costs, including lunch, $75 for members of TWUC. For those who can’t attend in one of the participating cities, a 3-hour webinar will be offered, distilling the highlights of the workshop.
