Writers now are expected to participate in social media, market and promote their work, and contribute to a changing and growing online literary community. This panel will look at how Twitter enhances and supports the development of a literary life. What are the benefits and nuances of using Twitter’s 140-character format? What are the pitfalls? Writers who are active Twitter users will discuss experiences and offer suggestions on how to integrate Twitter organically into daily writing routines.
