Class of interest to authors

Subject: Social Media for Business class at CCCC

Core Competency in Social Media, an 8-week, 24-hour class focused on using social media to achieve business results, is scheduled to start on September 16.

We'll meet in the computer lab of Building 1 at the Pittsboro Campus; Wednesday nights for three hours each evening, from 6-9 pm.

We'll cover the major platforms:  Linkedin, Facebook Business, Pinterest /Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+, and how they can be used for business, non-profits, and government agency benefit. 

We'll also talk about how to use paid advertising on the platforms, and answer questions about other social media platforms along the way (Houzz for any residential trades, for example). Many people have used the time as a guided work session, with support for their questions and no ringing phones to get in the way of building complete profiles for their business or agency.

Call the Continuing Education office at 919/ 542-6495 to register and pay (roughly $150).
Call me if you have any questions about the class, at 919/545-0799.
Would love to have you in the class!

Writers' Morning Out

Pittsboro Writers’ Morning Out will meet Saturday, August 8 2015, 1:00 PM.

 We meet at the Carolina Brewery in the Barley Lounge.  120 Lowes Drive, #100 .

Program : Revision: What or who tells me I need a revision? Come prepared to add your experience to the discussion.

All writers, any genre are invited. Come early and join us for lunch.

The NCWN turns 30 this year.  It has over 1200 members throughout NC and the adjoining states. Its goal, as established then, has not changed but continues to provide community, opportunity and excellence for all writers, at all levels.

The network is far too young to let our joints get stiff and creaky, or to get too set in our ways  It needs much more to do, to be, to try. For this it needs help from all its members. This year we are asking all of our members to give $30 or More for 30 and More: a donation of $30 (or more) to make sure the North Carolina Writers' Network is around for another 30 years (or more).

You may make your donation by check sent to NCWN, PO Box 21591, Winston-Salem, 27120 or by credit card at or by calling 336-293-8844 or 919-308-3228.

Thank you for being a part of the Network's first 30 years, and for helping us look forward to the next 30.
