How to Write a Powerful Book Proposal That Sells
Starting July 21, I'm teaching an 8-week class on writing a nonfiction book proposal in the digital age, with hands-on critique and feedback. The focus is not just on writing a book proposal that will sell the idea, but that will sell the book when it finally makes its way to the market. Click here for more information and to register.

Easy Ways to Meet, Teach, and Critique Online

This month I'm featuring services to help facilitate virtual meetings, which can also be used as lightweight services to support online teaching or critique groups. I recommend these because I like them (i.e., these are not ads).

Zoom

Zoom

I started using Zoom earlier this year as a way to run virtual roundtables for Scratch Magazine
  • Participants can join from nearly any device (either audio, video, or both).
  • Dial-in numbers are offered for those using phone only.
  • The host has access to one-click recording of the entire session, both audio and video.
Zoom offers a free version that supports meetings up to 40 minutes. So far, it's worked flawlessly and is very simple for non-techies to use.
BigMarker

BigMarker

If you've ever wanted to hold your own webinar or online class—without investing money or learning a totally new technology—take a look at BigMarker. You get free unlimited webinars and conferences for up to 100 people, with recording capability. If you decide to charge for your events, BigMarker takes a percentage of your registration fees.
Join.me

Join.me

If you're part of an online writing group (or a group that can't easily meet in person), then screen-sharing critique chats can be very useful for looking at documents together. And Join.me is ideal for screen-sharing. The basic version is free and allows up to 10 participants.
