March 5 Workshop: Wattpad with Linda Poitevin

Serialized fiction goes back to the time of Charles Dickens and is currently undergoing a revival in today’s digital world. Savvy authors around the globe are exploring this “new” way of publishing and reaping significant dividends. Join author Linda Poitevin for a look at Wattpad and Radish, two of the models currently available for serializing fiction, and learn how you can grow your own readership (and make money!) by joining the movement.

About Linda Poitevin:

Linda Poitevin is a former ORWA member, a copy editor, and the author of six full-length novels and one novella. She is both traditionally and self-published, and writes across a variety of genres including dark urban fantasy, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and (coming soon!) sci-fi pulp fiction. An active panelist and speaker, Linda presents workshops to other writers on the topics of social media, serialized fiction, and focusing on writing as a business. While she is not yet supporting her family with her fiction, her husband hasn’t given up hope.
