I wrote a post last year about gift ideas for the writer in your life (or for yourself, if you’re a writer). To add to that list of pens, books, and writing apps, I’m promoting two other writerly gift ideas.
Agile Writer Conference
Agile Writers is a Richmond, VA-area writers group of which I’m a member. The group runs numerous courses, like a comprehensive program for writing a full first-draft novel in six months, to specialty classes covering different aspects of writing, editing, and publishing. Next month, Agile Writers is putting on their first ever writers conference. I am of course attending, and I’m also speaking – I’ll be teaching a class about how to use Twitter to build your author platform and connect with your readers.
A conference ticket makes a great gift – for your writer loved one, or for yourself! And because I’m a speaker at this conference, if you register using the code GRACE17, you get a $10 discount. Cool, huh? Conferences are a great place to not only learn about every stage of writing and book production, but to network with other writers and people in the publishing world. So click on over to the Agile Writers site and get your ticket with the discount code of GRACE17 before Christmas!
Social Media Coaching for Writers
In addition to my class about Twitter that I’m teaching at the Agile Writers conference, I also offer coaching services on a one-on-one basis. If you can’t make it to the conference, or you just want personalized help with your author platform or social media, I’m here to help. Branding, platform building, Facebook page, GoodReads, Twitter – if any of those writerly buzzwords makes you feel intimidated or just confused, then shoot me a message. Personalized help makes a great gift any time!
Merry Christmas, and happy writing!
