In this dynamic 3 session workshop, we blend handholding with teamwork to tackle one of the most challenging aspects of authorship: presenting yourself online. Crafting a compelling online presence is daunting in multiple ways, and we understand that writing about yourself and your own work can be the toughest hurdle. 


Through a series of structured exercises and collaborative sessions, you'll embark on a journey with fellow authors to refine your author bio, select the perfect headshot, and curate essential elements for your website. Our approach is both supportive and interactive, offering a blend of personalized guidance and group feedback to ensure you leave with a polished online persona that authentically represents your writing identity. You'll not only conquer the dreaded author bio but also learn how to curate an overall compelling online presence that resonates with your audience.


Throughout the 3-part workshop, you'll engage in hands-on activities designed to fill-in the blanks of an effective author website. From initial homework assignments focused on introspection and self-discovery to breakout group sessions where you'll receive constructive feedback and brainstorm ideas with peers, each step is crafted to empower you in crafting a standout author website. 


By the end of the class, you'll not only have a finely-tuned bio and headshot but also a clear understanding of what additional elements should adorn your website to captivate readers and showcase your literary prowess. Join us on this collaborative journey and finally launch your author website!
