Topics to be discussed:

  • Blogging
  • Social Networking
  • Media Kits
  • Back Cover Design
  • Interviews
  • Trailers
  • Press Releases
  • Features

Writers will get a feel for what they might want to do themselves and what might best be delegated by listening to examples from real campaigns and comparing cost to benefit.
