Balsillie School of International Arts
Room #1-23
Writer's Craft Class

Once upon a time, marketing and publicity rested solely in the hands of the publisher. Today, self-promotion is a necessary survival skill—something that can often strike fear into the heart of a writer who is used to disappearing behind their computer screen. But marketing yourself as a writer needn’t be terrifying! Join writer and Twitter devotee Amanda Leduc for a candid information session as she takes you through some of the dos, the don’ts, and the dares of making a name for yourself online and IRL.

  • Amanda Leduc‘s stories and essays have been published across Canada, the US, and the UK. She is the author of The Miracles of Ordinary Men (ECW Press, 2013), and The Centaur’s Wife, forthcoming from Random House Canada in 2018. She lives in Hamilton, Ontario, where she spends too much time on Twitter and serves as the Communications and Development Coordinator for The Festival of Literary Diversity, Canada’s first festival for diverse authors and stories.
