Need to Know About Social Media?

Posted on Oct 1, 2009 in Work

cwipEarlier this year I had great fun speaking on a Chicago Women in Publishing panel on freelancing. CWIP asked me to present again this fall, and this time it’s more about navigating social media — and how we can use these services to build personal and organizational networks and promote our own work (in a friendly, non-spammy, it’s-all-about-the-social-capital kind of way).

If you’re a writer wondering if a blog can help show off your expertise, or an editor who has thought about using Twitter to connect with other people interested in the topics you cover, or if you’re just trying to figure out how to manage those pesky privacy settings on Facebook, this presentation is for you. We’ll cover some helpful free tools and I’ll show you how to create your own easy-to-use social media and news portal.

The program is Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. It’s at the Willis (er, Sears) Tower.

There will be handouts. And a Q&A. And refreshments!

Register here.

    Dear Christine – I’m so sorry I’ll be out of town for your October 21st presentation (traveling for an ABA meeting)! Your spring CWIP program was phenomenal. Good luck and best wishes,

    Oh gosh, how nice of you! Thank you for the kind words — sorry to miss you but hope the ABA meeting is fun(!). If I can get you a handout from the night, or answer a question, just let me know.
