March Zoom Meeting
Speaker: D. L. Havlin
Topic: Building a Platform for Both Non-fiction and Fiction Authors
March 20, 2021, 10:00 a.m. to noon
What’s a writing platform? It’s not built on the top of telephone poles, but it is a requisite for non-fiction authors and a valuable addition to the fiction writers marketing arsenal. This class deals with the way to build one, a legitimate one, in the field which you wish to write. Is a doctorate necessary? No, but a real, thorough, and defensible knowledge of your subject matter is critical. Ways to construct that “pulpit to preach from” are offered in this class.
