Writing and publishing a book is one thing, but finding a paying audience for it is quite another. In this workshop, book publicist Stephanie Barko leads you through proprietary exercises that coax your book’s platform to the surface.

What we will explore:

  • The need for a platform
  • The elements of a platform
  • Defining your audience
  • Accessing your audience

Join together with fellow writers as we explore our spheres of literary influence. It’s never too early to get started on your platform.

Who should attend?

  • Writers presently writing a manuscript
  • Writers with completed manuscripts
  • Writers seeking agent representation
  • Published writers wanting to increase their book sales
