Building Your Author Website 
This is a one-session workshop to help writers create their own professional and cost-effective website. While social media platforms are great for marketing, they are narrow and inflexible, prohibiting writers from being able to truly showcase themselves. Fortunately, making your own website is easier (and cheaper!) than ever, so that anyone of average tech-savviness can create a place to which they can confidently direct interested parties. Chris will walk step-by-step through the essentials of building a personal website in Squarespace, a very simple web-hosting and building platform. 

Note: Starting a website in Squarespace is free, but making it visible to the public requires a subscription fee of ~$13/month, which is not included in the cost of the course. Chris is a Squarespace Circle preferred developer, so writers who create their sites through this course will receive an additional discount off their Squarespace plan.

Who should take this class?
Any writer looking to gain someone's attention—be it an agent, editor, publicist, buyer at a bookstore, or a general reader—would benefit from a clear, simple, and attractive website that showcases their work and qualifications. You only need an Internet-enabled Mac or PC and the desire to be found online.

"Chris is always my first call on any tech project." - Jeff Le Blanc, co-founder of Out of Print Clothing
"Chris did a great job designing a website for me that continues to be easy to maintain and update on my own. He’s very easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend him!" - Jillian Cantor, author
"Awesome! I think you organized the course the perfect way, and we can notice how much effort you put into creating the format and the content of the class. I also love the way you teach and how enthusiastic you are about the material. I could notice how interested you were in the material, and it made me interested.”
"Amazing. One of the best professors I've ever had. Thoughtful, tried hard to foster connection between himself and students and did it better than anyone else. Give this guy a raise!" - former student
