Calling writers who need a platform

The Fairfield Public Library Writer’s Workshop will focus on "Building a Writer’s Platform" at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at 1080 Old Post Road.

The workshop will be presented by Adair Heitmann, shown.

"While waiting for agents to beat down your door, learn how to promote yourself and your writing by understanding what a platform is, why it’s important to have one, and how to find your niche," organizers said in a statement.
"Hear tried and true examples from an author who in September 2008 did not have a platform, and by 2009 when you Googled her, her name was at the top of the list."
 “I had fun building my platform and it serves me well. I hope all the writers out there will come to the Fairfield Public Library and discover how they can build their writer’s platform,” Heitmann said, also in the statement.

Heitmann’s award-winning work has been published in three anthologies, more than 30 magazines and newspapers and online in Voices: A Journal of Women’s Wisdom, the statement said. She is a Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism Grant recipient and is also a speaker and consultant, the statement said.
Heitmann blogs and tweets about creativity and wellness, is in many Who’s Who; and leads writing workshops at Fairfield Public Library, the statement said.

Register for thes event at or 203-256-3160.
Heitmann will raffle off a book at the end of the workshop. All events at the Fairfield Public Library are free.
