Creativity also extends to the process of marketing and promoting your work prior to, and during, its launch. That phase of writing can be the most intimidating for authors, no matter their level of expertise. It can be a daunting and awkward process. Join Halifax author and journalist, Janice Landry, for an evening where we will examine and discuss varying approaches to getting the word out about your latest writing project. Landry taught in the Department of Communication Studies at Mount Saint Vincent University for 16 years, leaving the campus in 2017 to focus on her own storytelling projects. A veteran instructor, she wants to hear about your written work and experiences, and help you shine.
