Are you a "Social Media Scaredy-cat"? Fully intending to get that Twitter, Author Facebook, Instagram, and/or Pinterest site set up, but never get around to it? Or are you afraid you don't know the basic etiquette for posting, or wonder if it's even worth it to set up these sites to promote your books?

The cool cats of social media and published authors Kym Brunner, Cherie Colyer, and Katie Sparks will explain why these sites are important and show you everything you need to know to get started.
Come on out to our next Food For Thought and find out all the "Do's and Don'ts" of each media type while we help you set up your own accounts. By the end of our group, you'll be purring with knowledge and grinning like the Cheshire Cat!
RSVP by August 31 to Kym Brunner to reserve your place. Please put RSVP in the subject line.
Cost is FREE but please be prepared to buy and enjoy lunch in our reserved room. Free Wi-Fi. Bring your laptop and get connected!

Content will be focused on applications for published members, but all SCBWI members are welcome to this event.
