WordPress Workshop for Writers in Salem, Oregon

WordPress EventsAre you a writer? Author? Thinking about it? Live in the Salem, Oregon, or nearby areas?

I’ll be leading a workshop in Salem, Oregon, specifically designed for writers and authors using WordPress. The event is part of the great work the Salem Chapter of the Willamette Writer’s Group, a regional group of writers and authors in the Pacific Northwest area.

The events begin with a presentation on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, at 6:30PM at Macey’s Salem Center. I will be talking about the challenges of a writer and author site, and introducing members to the different types of sites for writers and authors and how to build a community and audience around a site or book. The meeting is free, I believe.

Sunday, March 16, is a half-day workshop from 1-5PM at the Salem Public Library. We will dive deeper into customizing a WordPress site specifically for the needs of the writer, be it for the author and their books, to support a book or book series, and other alternative site types. This is a highly interactive workshop.

Lorelle presenting at WordCamp San Francisco.Participants in the workshop will need to bring their laptops or tablets. WIFI will be available. If participants do not have a current WordPress site, they will be led through the process of setting up their own free site.

The workshop will be customized based upon the needs of the attendees, so here is a general list of topics covered during the four hour workshop:

  • WordPress Content Organization and Structure (Pages, posts, categories, tags)
  • Site Models for Writers and Authors
  • Content Strategies (how to improve writing and speed blogging techniques)
  • Web Writing Tips and Techniques
  • Site Automation (how to make your site work for you, not against)
  • Social Media Integration

Prices for the half-day workshop are Members $40 and Non-Members $60. Prices higher at the door. Registration required.
