Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Does a Writer Need a Social Media Platform?

social strategy

As a recent MFA graduate who’s wading into the world of publishing, I’ve been counselled to start a blog, scare up a couple thousand Facebook friends, consider Twitter. This pressure to promote myself, in addition to writing a book and working full-time, could break my will, make me consider giving up writing altogether . . .”

When you have to make a choice about how to spend your writing time, choose your book first. Every. Single. Time. To approach your writing career any other way is a mistake.

from Stephanie Bane’s article  ‘Platforms Are Overrated‘ in Creative Nonfiction
