March Meeting: Barbara Morrison

February’s MWA Baltimore chapter meeting was all about giving back. We hope everyone’s brains are still buzzing from our discussion. For our March meeting, in order to keep your brains abuzz,  we bring you author extraordinaire, Barbara Morrison.

Barbara will show us how to give back to ourselves with Marketing Tools for Writers. In today’s volatile publishing environment, writers must also develop marketing skills. Publishers want authors who excel at marketing and promotion, and if you self-publish, all the marketing falls on your shoulders. Starting with the three questions you must first answer to guide your marketing strategy, we will look at the marketing tools that work today and discuss the pros and cons of different promotional strategies. You will come away with the start of an effective marketing plan.

Please join us at on Monday, March 25, 2013 at Ukazoo Books, 730 Dulaney Valley Road, Towson, MD 21204Meeting begins at 7PM.

  1. Join Apprentice House as we celebrate the launch of 10 new paperback books and 15 e-books… published by Loyola undergraduates. Our authors will join us live for readings, and others will meet the audience via video greetings. Meet the students who solicited, reviewed, accepted, edited and designed the books.
    “This is our largest release to date,” says AH publisher, Kevin Atticks, DCD. “We had incredible submissions and a talented group of students who made this possible,” says Atticks. Authors from the Baltimore area and beyond will be in attendance, with some sending video messages to announce their titles.
