Writing Away Refuge
Social Media Frenzy Workshops
May 25-26th, 2024



Join us over Zoom for a fun, fast-paced, jam-packed weekend of social media frenzy! Ever wonder how successful writers build their social media platforms (and successfully run them)? Well, think no more. We'll show you! We'll guide you through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, BookBub, Goodreads, and show you the best newsletter and feed for your personal author website. And, as an added bonus, each participant receives an emailed list of the best paid promotional websites to promote your book, and a list of over 100 FREE promotional sites to list your book! Registration is limited to 100 participants, so don't delay. We will also have some wonderful prize giveaways exclusively for writers, including a free first 3 chapters evaluation (up to $150 value), free 2-year membership to Writing Away Refuge ($95 value) and free entry to our next virtual retreat (up to $95 value).


Can't wait to socialize with you from the comfort of your own home (don't you just love Zoom?).
