Writing is entertainment and, as such, it exists in an industry predicated upon business deals, marketing, public relations, and social prowess. Tyler’s four-part course is designed to educate writers on a holistic approach to their careers: how long-term goals dictate trajectory; how social media and platform drive an active readership; how networking and professional relationships become blocks upon which to build a supportive community.

This course will also focus on how to make the literary industry work for you. The limited number of participants in this class ensures that each person receives adequate attention in regard to developing a business plan, a social media platform, and setting attainable goals that will propel both creativity and commerce. The intention is to leave each participant with pragmatic logistics that will better serve their writing while navigating the entertainment industry.

Tyler Dunning learned DIY practices that led him to independent publishing, mixed media collaboration, an international TEDx Talk, and storytelling tours around the world. He is the author of A Field Guide to Losing Your Friends and an ally to anyone earnestly pursuing art.
