Presentation skills and event planning webinar for Illustrators!
Time & Location
Jul 28, 2022, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM
About the event
With my special author/illustrator guests, Houston’s Marissa Valdez and Austin’s Emma Virján, I’ll be introducing you to exciting strategies for presenting yourself as a professional illustrator. We’ll also share top tips on how to plan the most effective and, above all, fun book launch events, both online and in-person, and cover useful topics such as:
· planning and promoting your own book launch and other events;
· collaborating with your publishers and authors—even celebrity authors—so you can play an active part in their marketing plans;
· creating fascinating interactive talks and hands-on workshops for presentation in schools and libraries;
· how to utilize your own community of illustrators and other book professionals to create buzz around your books.
You will be sent a downloadable worksheet guide so you can take notes of their advice, and your own ideas, and there will be time set aside for the panel to answer your questions.
