Our second month teaching the writers workshops at the African American Museum & Library at Oakland (AAMLO) have been a huge success. In January, we presented a general view of the publishing business on motivation for the new & aspiring author, options for publication and marketing strategies. This month, we had an overview for new attendees and spoke a bit about using a platform and how to brand yourself as a writer. So far, the turnout and responses have been excellent and we will hold more sessions, including March 17, St. Patrick’s Day.
As always, we would like to thank AAMLO for their generous partnership with Chatmon’s Books as we strive to make the museum and library a must-see spot for the East Bay region of the Bay Area. Besides our workshops, AAMLO has excellent programs and exhibits that can be better explained on their website. The Friends of AAMLO will have their own website in the future, but we would be remiss if we also didn’t mention their valuable contribution as well.
Would you like to be a part of this free workshop scheduled on the third Saturday of the month beginning at 2:00pm? You can sign up with us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest or you can visit our page here on the blog or Eventbrite and register there. Either way, we are looking forward to the next meeting and please check back often here at the blog as we’re preparing for more special announcements coming soon.
Don’t forget to support our Literature Unlimited Campaign by reading a book or urging your children to read as well.
