Writing Away Refuge
Social Media Frenzy Workshop
May 6th & 7th, 2023

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. Can't wait to socialize with you from the comfort of your own home (don't you just love Zoom?). ***Can't make it to the Social Media Frenzy Workshop in May? We have make-up dates in June.
