Beyond Social Media: The Art of Self-Promotion
Randy Richardson is one of the most prolific members of the Chicago writing family. In addition to helping create the Chicago Writers Association (and serving as president for many years), he has published many essays and two novels and organized a variety of author activities--all in addition to his day job as an attorney. In this session, Randy outlines the many important ways to promote your work beyond social media. He offers practical tips on networking, readings, entering contests, getting reviews and other forms of stepping away from the computer.
An attorney and award-winning journalist, Randy Richardson is a founding member and president of the Chicago Writers Association. His essays have been published in the anthologies Chicken Soup for the Father and Son Soul, Humor for a Boomer’s Heart, The Big Book of Christmas Joy, Be There Now, and Cubbie Blues: 100 Years of Waiting Till Next Year, as well as in numerous print and online journals and magazines.
