Telling My Story: Blogging & Social Media Workshop November 9, 2014 in Mississauga, ON

Rise Up! Rise ABOVE! is holding its second "Telling My Story" Workshop on November 9th (2014) in the Mississauga Central Library from 2-4pm.

The workshop specifically covers Blogging and Social Media as story telling.

In this interactive 2-hour workshop, I'll explore the elements of storytelling for this specific media, how to create a good blog, how to use it, SEO techniques (with other social media) and the pros and cons of keeping one. The workshop will also cover how to do research, and privacy issues.

Worksheets are included. Educational books and DVDs will also be available for sale.

I've been blogging for over seven years. I created and continue to run over five of my own blogs and have guest blogged on many others, including community/interest ezines (e.g., Scribophile, Amazing Stories, Europa SF, Strange Horizons, IROSF, etc.); but I still have time to go to the beach. Find out the secrets that took me years to figure out. If you like the beach, you'll come. See you there!

Where: Room 2, Mississauga Central Library, 301 Burnhamthorpe R. W, Mississauga, ON; 905-615-3500.
When: Sunday, November 9, 2014, 2-4 pm
Fee: $20/person (cheque or cash at workshop)

Ru!RA! is a not-for-profit corporation (registered federally in Canada) with a mission to bring about Empowerment through Creativity. RuRA! uses a creative arts approach (writing, art, music, dance) to get past stumbling blocks/trauma/discrimination/mental health issues that hold us back as individuals or communities from moving forward with our lives.

"The creative process helps immeasurably in externalizing the trauma/issue and holding it at arm's length while we learn coping skills and (hopefully) discover a passion for a particular form of creative expression. Our reach is to all communities with a focus on women, youth and native groups. We are developing workshop models around art/poetry expression and "Telling my Story" is one of them."--Cheryl Antao Xavier, Executive Director
