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?
JR. Forasteros will answer these questions and more in his in-depth seminar this Sunday (9/30 @ 3PM), Author Platform 101: Building Your Brand without Selling Your Soul, about building your career and your brand. You can attend in-person or via live stream and you can register directly for the seminar HERE.
JR. Forasteros is the author of Empathy for the Devil. He also blogs for NorvilleRogers.com and is a prolific podcaster. He leads an Awaken Creativity Writers' Group for Art House Dallas, and his writings have appeared in several essay collections, Grace and Peace magazine and Relevant magazine. JR. is also a pastor, training a team of volunteer preachers in writing for public speaking.
We'd love to have you join us this Sunday! And feel free to respond to this e-mail if you have any questions.
