Panel Discussion on Effects of Social Media on Writing and Creativity

More and more writers are struggling with their work while simultaneously struggling with promoting their work on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. Has the world tilted too far into social media as something required of creative people? What are the effects on a writer’s relationship to her work when overly involved in social media? Is social media the amazing marketing tool it’s billed to be, and at what cost to creativity?

Join Piedmont Laureate Nancy Peacock with writers Anna Jean Mayhew, Ralph Hardy, Michele Berger, Charles Fiore and Kim Church in a panel discussion on creativity and social media.
