Just back from yesterday’s fantastic Wired Words Festival in Victoria, BC, held in the 19th century Law Courts housed in what is now the Maritime Museum in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
Talk about a steampunk experience! Sixty writers discussing and learning about the latest digital technology in a historic courtroom built in 1887.
Attendees were tweeting up-to-the-minute conference proceedings from their iPhones. Check the #wiredwords hashtag on Twitter for details.
We had a great line-up of presenters giving us the goods:
Lorne Daniel – “What E-Books Mean for Writers”
Melody Poirier/Island Blue Printorium – “Print-On-Demand Publishing”
Mandy Leith – “Social Media Strategy”
Kim Nayyer – “Blogging & CBC Citizen Blogging”
Kim Goldberg – “Marketing Your Book Online for Free”
Mandy Leith – “Film Editing for Writers”
Thanks to the Federation of BC Writers for mounting this festival, and to Alison Gair who made it all happen. Check out Fed President Craig Spence’s blog posting after the Festival including video interviews with two of the presenters: Lorne Daniel and Mandy Leith.
