About the Class
Social media provides us with an amazing opportunity to share our ideas, connect with others, and grow an audience around our art, our musings, and our services.
But writing for social media is unlike any other form of writing. In the age of algorithms and short attention spans, it’s easy to feel invisible. Plus, it can be daunting and embarrassing to make our inner worlds public, especially in the crowded and competitive social media landscape.
