How many Twitter followers do you have? Do you blog regularly? What's your email newsletter about? Nobody writes because they want to build a platform. But if you want to get published, it's a necessary evil. The good news: Platform-building doesn't have to be a chore, and it doesn't have to leave you feeling gross. How can you build a platform that is a natural extension of your writing? What elements should you focus on? And do you really have to have a blog? We'll answer these questions and more in this in-depth seminar about building your career and your brand.

Fee: $60 or $50 for former/current students | Live Stream Available!
