Writers Conference Panelists: Linda Marsa, Dan Q. Dao, Dorri Olds, Barclay Palmer, Coleen Jose
“Using Smartphones To Tell Stories”
This year I am speaking on two panels at the ASJA 46th annual writers conference.
On Friday, May 5, I will be speaking at 2:45 pm on a panel created by award-winning ASJA member Linda Marsa. I will also be moderating our talk, which will cover the nuts and bolts of producing video with a smartphone, including how to gather the elements and put them together:
- Uploading to outlets from the field
- What gear to get
- Best editing apps
- Voice over narrations
- Downloading the video to your desktop
This session will also discuss how to find funding for multimedia projects, including grants, foundation funding and editorial outlet funding.
The publishing industry occupies very different terrain than it did even a decade ago. With the industry shift from print to digital, new media for authors, the influx of content marketing, and revolving editors, freelancers—experienced and new—need to build their platforms while developing creative business strategies.
Never before has it been so essential for successful writers to Pivot in order to Publish and Prosper.
With more than 1,200 members, ASJA stands as the country’s leading and most prestigious association of successful journalists, authors and nonfiction and literary nonfiction writers.
The writers conference is a 2-day event held at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan located at 45 East 45th Street at Madison Avenue.
