Here is a picture from the panel discussion I was part of last night at the WGA. Here is the description from the WGA Web site…
“TOOT YOUR OWN HORN: SELF-PROMOTION IN THE DIGITAL AGE
In these challenging times, it is imperative that writers take control of their own careers. Be proactive, “do it yourself,” especially regarding publicity and marketing. Technology has swiftly changed, providing writers with new avenues to promote themselves and their work. Have you tapped in? Co-presented by the WGAW’s Writers Education and Publicity and Marketing committees, this DIY panel features publicist Henri Bollinger, president of the Entertainment Publicists Professional Society, discussing personal publicity vs. when to bring on a “professional”; screen and TV writer/author/award-winning columnist W. Bruce Cameron (8 Simple Rules, A Dog’s Purpose); Zoanne Clack (Grey’s Anatomy, co-executive producer); Gregg Kilday, film editor at The Hollywood Reporter; psychotherapist Rebecca Roy (TheIndustryTherapist.com) to broach writers’ resistance to self-promotion; and independent new media consultant Douglas Welch addressing new media and social marketing platforms. Panel followed by smaller hands-on breakout sessions.”
I will post more photos and, hopefully, some video as soon as I receive it.
