COURTENAY, BC — Hot on the heels of their successful Spring Summit, the Federation of BC Writers is excited to announce their Fall Mini Summit, featuring five days of virtual presentations aimed at giving new and experienced writers the tools they need to advance their careers and market their books. From November 21-25, the FBCW’s first-ever Mini Summit will offer presentations from marketing specialists on topics such as newsletters, book cover design, social media engagement, author websites and more.

“The Federation of BC Writers prioritises programming to match requests from our members and the broader writing community,” said Executive Director Bryan Mortensen. “I can’t count the number of emails and messages we’ve received asking for help with online book marketing. As such, we felt the time was right to put together a grouping of workshops and information sessions dedicated to helping writers spread the word about their printed

works, and to get their books into the hands of eager readers.”

While members of the FBCW get a discounted rate, the Mini Summit is open to all interested writers. Registering for the one-week Mini Summit gives participants access to all five days of presentations, which are live via Zoom. A recording of each presentation will continue to be available for one month following the Summit.
