How to Develop a Story Plan - Shared screen with speaker view
Has anyone here ever worked with Bonnie Warren in New Orleans (Brennan's)? She passed away yesterday.
hi everyone. it’s pretty darn cold here too
Hello from New Zealand everyone!
Larry made the Oklahoman with Green Book sites, too
Hello from Miami - where it’s 78 degrees!
We got six inches of awesome snow here. Love it.
problem with sound and
Fun lovers, please send me your questions I'll relay them to Diana when she joins us.
My first question: what if you discover your anticipated story doesn’t exist or should be preempted by something else more pressing?
Oops, that was NatGeo, not Afar.
Ace work Jill!
Are there any beautiful travel writing examples that incorporate good SEO practices?
Will we be able to access power-point? Where?
I’d love to get a copy of power point so i can add personal notes to it. It’s very good.
Kim Harms Robinson
Ditto to a copy of power point
Yes, please address SEO
Me too, if Diana is willing. Thank you!
Grab your phones and take pics of the screen :)
Me too, thank you. This is great.
Happy to get that PowerPoint. Can email a link (I think this is a Google presentation) or we can post it on the site.
SEO is such a huge topic that we have a whole session on it on March 30. And that is a great question.
By the "site," I mean on the professional development tab on satw.org
By the way, everyone, Jill's story appeared in NatGeo, not AFAR. My error and we'll get that corrected on the slides.
Must run. Mid-year board meeting soon. Thanks all and be well!
On the site or a link to power point would be great @catharinehamm. This is great. I missed first 15 but assume this is being recorded
Terry, it is being recorded. I will double check with Anna McManus to see the time line for getting this up on the site.
I can send the recording in the post-webinar email!
Thanks Anna! I had to miss the first few minutes
@JillR, this is a sign you should repurpose the story for Afar
Diana has joined us. Send in your questions.
The presentation is excellent. thank you Diana.
Thank you! It’s an honor to be here.
Got to say I’ve been really enjoying the PD sessions lately - great stuff - well done!
Mary, great to hear. Send us ideas for more!
Does Diana have any tips for repurposing a story for another outlet? In other words, can a writer hang onto the shape or a story but try to find new powerful words
can you discuss incorporating SEO without jeopardizing the power and flow of your story especially your nut graf.
Thanks, Mary! We're so enthusiastic about these webinars and are happy to hear you're enjoying and learning too!
Love Vani!!! <3
Vani was wonderful to work with at LAT?
Catherine please do send us the link to your SEO article. I’ve written for sites where they extremely SEO focused to the point it kills your creativity. thanks
a strong phonetic word, perhaps?
This was great. Thank you!
haha, love Catherine’s straight face asking if there is word other than hoot. She is a hoot!
this was great - thanks!
Please address story length and how to set the scene — as in Jill’s story — and still get everything Mabel the reader needs. The magazine I edit limits destination stories to 900 words and it’s hard to get travel writers to adhere to that word count.
Thank you so much Diana! That was great!
