Learn WordPress: A Workshop with Karma Bennett

May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

$10 – $15

At last month’s meeting we gave you tips on improving your website, now we’ll teach the skills to do it, in a hands-on workshop on WordPress. The workshop will be held over Zoom, so you can beautify your website from the comfort of your own computer.

WordPress is a way for you to run a website without having to know a single line of code. Just as you don’t have to know how to code to write an email in Gmail, WordPress is an interface that you can use to create content for your website.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is open source, so it is free forever.

It is incredibly popular. 37% of all websites on the Internet run on WordPress.

Why Writers Need This Workshop

Save Money: WordPress is designed for noncoders to use, so you shouldn’t have to hire a coder or web designer just to update promotions of your book on your website. Save money by taking this workshop.

Increase Engagement: You should have a blog or news area where you update your fans on you readings, publications, readings, and ruminations. Taking this workshop will make blogging easier and make your posts more beautiful. And if you’re more familiar with what WordPress can do, you’ll feel comfortable blogging more often.

Test It Out: If you don’t use WordPress currently, you can use this workshop to decide if it is right for your next web project.

Make Editors Want To Hire You: If you get hired to write for someone else’s site, there is a good chance it will be on WordPress. Having WordPress expertise is a marketable skill for writers.
