Free Blogging Masterclass at Max Gate
Monday October 12th
Lynne Hatwell has been writing her blog DoveGreyReader scribbles for almost ten years now, gathering an audience worldwide who share her interest in literature, books and reading, arts and crafts, gardening, life in the Tamar Valley and everything else in between. In this masterclass she will share her experiences and knowledge of the blogosphere, the definite dos and maybe the don’ts enabling class members to find their own voice and subjects. As part of the masterclass each attendee will be given a different book as a starting point for discussion about reviewing, reading for review, what is a review, how to decide what to read and what to write about, with outcomes that will be transferable to any blogging subject. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and exploration of the subject and hopefully attendees will leave feeling enthused and informed.
All workshops will take place in one of the rooms at Max Gate. To book your place on this please contact the house directly on 01305 262538.
