Sokulski Outing: “Aesthetics of Design: Understanding the Elements of Powerful Graphics”
It's no secret that my job as of late has kept me so busy that I've had a complete push-back regarding progress and time to invest in this blog. Thankfully, for the sake of my sanity, I've managed to set time aside to plan just how to get back into the swing of things.
As I'd been sipping at my mug of jasmine tea and pondering just how far I'd strayed from dedicating myself to my writing, and while this led to a bout of whining and procrastination, I remembered what I missed just as much as my writing.
I. Love. Teaching.
I'm no school teacher, but I do love the writing community and all its worth. I love when the opportunity arises to share what I know and debate it with entirely different minds, whether new or seasoned. I missed the feeling that comes with the interested looks on peoples faces, just before they part their lips to ask a question, mainly when I'm on the receiving end of those looks.
So naturally, I got in touch with my associates at Inklings Publishing and offered my services. Lucky for me, their Authorology sessions for the summer are going on, and they just happened to have a slot for me to take. What's more, this little slot came with a request. Rather than rinse and repeat on a session covering world building or character development, I was requested to assist fellow authors with self-promotion of all things.
Well, I do have a hand in graphic design and love a challenge, so why not? As you can see above, on August the 25th, 2017, I will be teaching a class on the basics of graphic design for writers who are interested in affordable self-promotion.
We'll cover the basics of what to do and what to avoid, how to make things eye-catching while keeping it professional and, most importantly, take a look at the most comprehensive and budget-friendly tools to get you going.
Authorology classes are not free, you can purchase a ticket for my session for $10.00 ($5.00 if you're a member), from the following link: [ Authorology ].
Please feel free to bring a notebook (electronic or otherwise), record my session with a device that records audio or any other method of taking notes as we're going to cover a lot of material. I can't wait to see you then!
