What the heck is a Platform, anyway?!

Ten building blocks every writer needs with Bill Crawford and Rusty Shelton

WLT 2010 Third Thursday Series

“Building Your Buzz!”

7 p.m. January 21
at the Writers’ League Office
611 S. Congress Ave., Suite 130

This session, our first of the New Year, will focus on defining that annoying, ever-present, and oh-so-hard to define buzz word of the publishing industry: platform. What is it? Why do I need one? And how do I build one? It will be an overarching introduction to the world of buzz-building and will touch on the ten topics, or building blocks, to be covered throughout the year’s Third Thursday meetings.

We’re lucky to have Bill Crawford and Rusty Shelton as our panelists this time around!

Bill Crawford is a development editor for the Greenleaf Book Group in Austin and is ghostwriting a history of the HGTV network.

Rusty Shelton is the managing director of Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists.

Before the program, join us from 5-7 PM for Happy Hour at Doc’s Motorworks, 1123 S. Congress Ave., a few blocks down the street from the WLT office. This is a great time to meet and mingle with other writers! We also like it because we get to know our writing community better, both WLT members and nonmembers alike.
