Sunshine Coast writers will have the opportunity to learn about promoting themselves and their work at a special workshop at Noosa Library in July.
The Sunshine Coast Literary Association workshop, to be presented by Sunshine Coast public relations director and university teacher Michelle Smytheman, will help writers take the next step in their journey – promoting themselves and their work.
“Writers are incredible people and it is important that they get the opportunity to share their work with others so I have created a workshop that will give them the skills and tools to do that,” Michelle said.
During the Promotion: The Next Step to Literary Success workshop, Michelle will share the knowledge she has built up during her 15-year career in public and media relations, and journalism. As director of Reflected Image PRoductions, Michelle understands the importance of effective communication and maintaining positive relationships with media.
“In a world where people were bombarded with news and advertising it is sometimes difficult for people to get their story out there but there are some simple skills and tools that can help whether you are looking to promote yourself in your local community or further afield,” Michelle said.
The 3-hour workshop will enable authors to develop their own Public Relations campaign from start to finish.
The workshop will help participants learn about:
• Developing a Public Relations campaign
• Successfully writing for the media.
• Knowing who to contact with your story.
• Developing effective interview skills.
Reflected Image PRoductions and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council proudly support this event.
