Writing Authentically Online

1:40pm to 3:10pm

Presenter: Meg Fee

In 2015, I published a small collection of essays online - on my blog. That digital download led to a direct twitter message from an independent publisher. That direct message then led to an agent and an eventual book deal. The story of how I published my first book is a bit of a Cinderella-story of the Digital Age, but it’s also not singular to me. This workshop will cover how to successfully transition from a blog to a book, and how to do it in a way that feels purposeful. You don’t need to have a massive following to attract attention, you simply need to write in your authentic voice. Writing truthfully online today (whether it’s on a blog or Instagram) is harder and more important than ever before - and ultimately it is the thing that will attract followers, engagement, and - yes - book deals.
