Not Just a Blog: How Publishers and Writers Can—and Should—Use Tumblr to Create and Promote.
(Fernanda Diaz, Rachel Fershleiser, Michele Legro, Ryan Chapman, Miles Klee)
This panel aims to demystify Tumblr for the first-time user and outline good Tumblr practices for more seasoned members. Panelists will talk about the rewards—and the challenges—of running a successful Tumblr that helps publishers and writers promote their work, interact with readers, and contribute to the growing literary community on the site.
I will be on a panel at AWP with four people smarter than I am. We will talk about Tumblr strategies for authors, big publishers, indie presses, and lit mags. We will be informal and tell you secrets and say fuck a lot. We will probably give you stickers/kisses at the end. What I’m saying is, don’t miss it!
Friday, 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. Room 312, Level 3
