WEBINAR SERIES: Eight & Under 2022

When: September 10, October 15, and November 5 at 9:00 a.m. plus a bonus webinar on September 19 at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Online

What: Are you in the process of writing and/or illustrating a board book, picture book, early reader, or chapter book? Join us for three successive monthly sessions, each of which will include a faculty webinar presentation followed by peer critique groups led by an already published author or author-illustrator from the Eastern PA chapter (all held virtually).

Peer group facilitators will provide written feedback on one manuscript for each participant in their group at the beginning of the program. Participants will take what they learn from the webinars, peer facilitator feedback, and peer critique group discussions to revise one manuscript/dummy throughout the series.

FREE WEBINAR SERIES: Digital Presence with Sarah Maynard

When: October 3, October 20, November 14

Where: Online

What: 

October 3: How to DIY Your Website (No Coding Required!) As book creators, we need to have a professional website. In this webinar, you will learn why you need a website (and not just a social media page), the three things you need to have on your website (and what the bonus pages could be), and how to create your website from scratch in less than a day. Attendees will receive a DIY Website Worksheet to help them get started.

October 20: Social Media 101: Do’s, Don’ts, and How to Stay Engaged Are you overwhelmed by the thought of keeping up with social media? Do you feel like it’s something you need to do but don’t know where to start? And what about the seemingly constant changes on social platforms? In this webinar, you will learn where it is best for you to be on social media, pitfalls to avoid when posting, and how to make social media work for you!

November 14: Hello Email List, It’s Me, Again Have you thought about starting an email newsletter? Do you have an email list already but aren’t sure how to use it effectively? Are you overwhelmed by the thought of sending email after email? And what do you write?? In this webinar, we will talk about why having an email list is important (more important than social media!), how to get subscribers and keep them, and the number one mistake people make when creating emails to their list.

    Adam Lehrhaupt made us laugh with his entertaining monkey book, Do Not Open This Book.

    Bryan Collier demonstrated that hard work and determination pays off and his artwork was nothing short of inspiring. For 7 years, he hit the pavement until one day, someone said YES.

    Debbie Dadey taught us that a ‘no’ means you get back to the keyboard or the canvas and KEEP going.

    Linda Oatman High made us excited to be a writer and/or illustrator. Stories exist in even the smallest picture.

    And that was just Saturday morning!
