be your own publicist: The Writers' Union of Canada


The Writers' Union of Canada (TWUC) is offering the Professional
Development Workshop HOW TO BE YOUR OWN PUBLICIST in Halifax, Toronto,
Montreal, Ottawa and Kingston, in November 2012. The workshops take
place from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. For those who can't attend in one of
the participating cities, a 3-hour webinar will be offered, distilling
the highlights of the workshop.

Authors Elizabeth Ruth and Ann Douglas will present on traditional but
innovative book marketing strategies as well as new media
opportunities for writers. Kelly Duffin, Executive Director of The
Writers' Union of Canada, will update participants on the latest
evolutions in the publishing landscape.

Whether you are an aspiring writer wanting to develop your audience
before publication; an emerging writer who needs to stay visible; or
long-published and looking for new tips and techniques, this full-day
workshop is for you.

Participants will leave the workshop having gained the know-how and
confidence to creatively promote their own future works, and an
expanded, inspired sense of what it means to be a writer in the
current publishing context.

Most workshops of this calibre charge hundreds of dollars. The price
of this workshop is $89.00 and covers costs, including lunch, $75 for
members of The Writers' Union of Canada. For registration information
please go to Please circulate this
information to writers you think might be interested in coming to this
event. Space is limited so register today.

Many thanks for your time and attention.

Kelly Duffin
