April Writers Forum & Second Saturday Art Night Photos

The second Saturday of each month is a great day for writers in the North State.  Every second Saturday we have our Writers Forum monthly meeting and then local authors conduct book signings at All About Books.  It’s a great time to be a writer in the North State!

Kate Bourland educated Writers Forum on the ins and outs of blogging.

Writers Forum members furiously scribbled notes while dreaming big about our the possibility of own blogs.

Later that night Redding residents came out for Second Saturday Art Night to visit local authors at All About Books.

Author and Writers Forum member Edna Eades featured autographed copies of her book.

Author and All About Books owner, Richard Lucas featured his books and those of many other local authors.

If you’re a writer and would like to be a featured author during the Second Saturday Art Night, please contact Richard Lucas at All About Books.

See you soon at our May Writers Forum meeting!

Blogging with Kate Bourland

At our April meeting*, new Writers Forum webmaster Alicia McCauley will present a brief explanation of the functions and features of the newly designed Writers Forum website.

Then special media consultant Kate Bourland will educate our audience on the nuts and bolts of blogs and blogging.  Kate has been involved with online marketing and social media since 1995 and has enjoyed many successes using Social Media to achieve marketing objectives.  Her background in sales, marketing and traditional media give her a unique perspective on how to effectively integrate Social Media into an overall business plan to achieve desired results.

Writers Forum members will come away inspired by the many ways they can utilize the organization’s Web site to their advantage, and by the enormous potential value of blogging as a way to enhance a writer’s career.
