“Websites for Writers: Launch Your Website in a Weekend” with Nikkita Cohoon
Saturday, Nov. 15, 2:30pm-3:45pm (Session F3)

Websites-for-WritersHaving a web presence has become increasingly important for networking, job searches, and establishing yourself as a professional writer. Your website can act as your online business card or resume, and serve as an archive for your publications, and with a blog it can provide your own platform for sharing your writing. Where do you begin, and how can you do it for little to no cost? In this session, we’ll go over some of the most popular website platforms to determine what will work best for you and how to set up a professional website with a custom look and feel. Nikkita Cohoon offers more details below:

Any last words?
Creating a website can be as simple or as complicated as you make it. This session will take away some of the intimidation and equip you with the tools you need to get started. I’m thrilled to be back at BGSU among my esteemed colleagues and friends!
