I want to let you know about a free webinar that I will present on Wednesday, June 27th at 3 p.m. EDT, hosted by the Professional Outdoor Writers Association (POMA.) This is a terrific group dedicated to fostering excellence in communication for people who cover traditional outdoor sports and conservation. I presented two workshops at the POMA annual business meeting last summer in
Ogden, Utah, and I am on the program again this year for the meeting in Tunica, Mississippi.
In next week’s POMA webinar, I will begin with a quick overview of the explosion in eBook publishing and reading. Then I will offer specific tips for formatting articles and publishing them via Kindle Direct Publishing. I will draw heavily on an invaluable resource that, if you have any interest in this topic, you should buy immediately. It’s a 99-cent Kindle article written by Kate Harper titled “How to Publish and Sell Your Article on the Kindle: 12 Tips for Short Documents.” My presentation will take 30 minutes, and afterward there will be another 30 minutes available for questions that you will be able to enter in a chat window.
Tom Claycomb III attended my workshop in Ogden and followed up by publishing his own article, which you will find at the Kindle Store by searching for “knife sharpening.” This is a topic that Tom knows a lot about, and his 99-cent article is informative and entertaining. Here is Tom’s description:
This is an 11 page article on How to Sharpen your knife. 100% of Outdoorsmen use a knife and yet I bet less than 5% can sharpen one. It does take some skills but it doesn’t require a PhD. I’ve worked for 3 of the top 4 Beef Plants for the last 30 years so let’s see if I can’t help you out.
Anyone can register for the webinar, but if you are a member of POMA you will also be able to see a video that will be uploaded later, as well as a Resources Guide that I will post.
I will present the webinar from my MacBook Air here at the cottage in Ocean Park, Maine, but you probably won’t be able to hear the sound of the surf out my window–the better to concentrate on a topic that I hope some of you will find interesting.
If you have any questions about the free webinar, please feel free to leave a comment here, or you can email me at PodChronicles AT gmail DOT com. Thanks!
