Speaker: Keith Edward English, author of fantasy and science fiction, spoke offering valuable, practical writing and marketing tips such as how to get the free video editing app “durecorder.” SJVWriters appreciated his marketing suggestions to the extent that we arranged with Keith to lead a mini-workshop following the break at the regular meeting February 10, with folks bringing laptops and trying out some online marketing approaches then.
