Friday Find for Writers: Social Media Resources

Yesterday, I spent a wonderful afternoon at the Manhattanville College Summer Writers’ Week. My task was to deliver a presentation on “Social Media Strategies for Writers.” To complement the presentation (and to acknowledge the resources I’d found most helpful in constructing it), I prepared a handout (light on blogging/author website resources, since other sessions were tackling those areas). Keep reading if you want to take a look at the resources I shared.

    Hi Erika,
    Thanks for your presentation at M’ville on Thursday. I am now on Twitter, following you, Jane Friedman, among other book and writing sources! Also going to revive my blog. You gave me courage 🙂

    1. Erika Dreifus says:

      That’s wonderful, AmyG! Thanks for letting me know. Now I’m going to go look for you on Twitter.

      I’m glad, Caryn!

  6. Erika, this is wonderful. As a too-busy novelist/writing instructor in the DC area, social media and promotion often have to come last on my to-do list. So being efficient and effective is important. Your blog was and is very helpful to me, and I suspect to many others! Thanks! Now back to the WIP, due on my editor’s desk September 1. Geesh! Kathryn

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, Kathryn. And good luck with that September 1 deadline!

  7. This is a great list Erika. I found my way here via the LinkedIn Group LinkEds & Writers. Seems apropos to find a list of social media resources through social media. Inadvertently, I recently started ghostwriting on social media platforms for several small businesses, so I’m eager to study these resources for tips I might apply in these jobs. I’m excited that I may have a new niche for my freelance writing and I’m excited about these resources. Thanks.
