June 16th Online Meeting: Crowdcasting and Social Media as Tools for Audience and Community-Building

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America is announcing NEW programs and online meetings for ALL of our members, no matter where you live.

Until otherwise noted, our meetings will be presented online so that you can attend using your computer or other device. Our first online meeting will be at 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 16th. We’re excited to bring you a larger cast of speakers since we’re no longer limited to persons living near the greater DC Metro area. We can now tap the expertise of people from all over the nation and beyond.

Please join us for a panel discussion about the tools available to reach readers and build community during and after the pandemic. Authors Ed AymarEdwin Hill, and Alex Segura will talk about the lessons learned from their virtual Noir at the Bar events and other tools available for online outreach, and will answer questions about how to make the most of social media. This event is FREE, and RSVPs are not required.

Kathy Harig at Mystery Loves Company is very pleased to be included as the bookstore host for this Tuesday’s virtual meeting, and she set up a bookshop/storefront for the participating authors. That link is here: https://bookshop.org/lists/mwa-june-16-book-list  If you’ve never read anything by Ed, Alex, or Edwin, now is your chance to snap up their work!

If you do not already have it, please download a free copy of Zoom now (at zoom.com). It takes about 60 seconds.

Remember to grab a drink, order your favorite meal from your kitchen, and enjoy the presentation. And don’t forget to tip your wait staff when our online meeting is over.

We look forward to seeing you!
