BLOG-ICITY: WHY MOST BLOGS SUCK & HOW TO MAKE IT WORK — You got a book contract–CONGRATS!–but your editor says you need a blog. How do you start? What should you blog? Why blog at all? A well planned and executed blog can build audience, create content for future books, even get you a book contract, and enhance author credibility. This session answers your must-know questions, and points out some of the common reasons blogs fail, and why every writer (both nonfiction and fiction) should consider blogging. We’ll discuss blog platforms, choosing content, scheduling effectively, monetizing your blog, copyright and FTC disclosure issues and more in this fun powerpoint presentation.
SCRIPTING NEKKID: The Playwright’s Life: Learn what’s involved in writing plays, and how to take a script from concept to production.

Topics covered include play format, path to production, how to include music (or not), copyright issues, and how to collaborate (without killing each other!). This powerpoint presentation includes examples from SHOJAI & STEELE PLAYS productions, and more.

DRAMA-MOMMA TO DOTING DAD. What types of Cat Parents are you and your readers? Every cat is the same—aloof, stand offish, can’t be trained….WE KNOW that’s false! Cats are like furry snowflakes, each with a different look and purr-sonality. So are owners. And while we all share a passion for cats—and so do our readers—understanding the kinds of cat parents who read our blogs can help us serve them better, and in turn, their cats. This fun power point includes a Q & A discussion of what’s “normal” for you and for your readers.
SHOJAI & STEELE PLAYS presented several workshops once again in February 2016 at the NATIONAL Thespian Festival for Middle School students and their teachers.
