Special Interests Groups - Intro
Thanks so much for your interest in the Garden Writers Association Social Media Special Interest Group (SIG). If you’re visiting this page, you may be interested in joining Jayme Jenkins and Dee Nash as we embark on a journey to better understand how social media can impact our careers. As you know, most writing contracts require a social media presence to promote your work. Together, we’ll figure out the best ways for social media to work for you without making you a slave to the virtual world.
We wanted to update you on the current progress of the Social Media Special Interest Group (SIG). We had our first teleconference on November 8, 2012. Here are links to the notes about the teleconference along with the audio for your review.
We assembled a survey to gauge the interest and skill level of GWA members interested joining the Social Media SIG. Initially, the survey is being sent to the initial group of teleconference invitees and will later be sent to the full GWA membership.
Everyone who joins the Social Media SIG will be responsible for creating their own social media accounts (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc.). We discovered a great resource page on Social Media Examiner to help you get started, and show you how to develop a brand and create more buzz about your business.
Call for Volunteers
Finally, we are on the lookout for volunteers to help discover sponsors, plan future programs, and start the brainstorming process for the 2013 Annual GWA Symposium in Quebec. Please take a moment to think about anyone you know with expertise in this subject. We can’t do it alone. We need you too. The programs can only be as good as the participants’ desires and support.
Thanks so much and have a great day.
Jayme Jenkins and Dee Nash
