Please share with friends – I recommend these 2 classes on Saturday August 25, 2018  Mechanics’ Institute Library in San Francisco, California

Create a winning website/blog for yourself with expert help from Linda Lee Askmepc

http://www.askmepc-webdesign.com/

Morning class:  https://www.milibrary.org/events/author-website-building-site-works-aug-25-2018 
Afternoon class: https://www.milibrary.org/events/wordpress-bootcamp-creating-wordpress-website-and-how-use-it-aug-25-2018

Expert Linda Lee says:

The morning class is a round table discussion where we discuss general questions such as; domain names, hosting, websites, and what you need to get started.

What is the difference between all these things? What should they cost me? What domain names should I buy and where?

Why do I need all of this to have a website?

This is a beneficial few hours for many people. You can ask me any questions you like.

I have a presentation and hand-out with all the important facts you need to know.

It is common for people to not understand exactly how this all works. It can be quite confusing.

This is a warm and informative environment to learn. There are no silly questions here.

This class is very affordable! Click the link below to sign up and read more details if you are interested.

The afternoon class is an actual hands-on WordPress (WP) training class.

Once you sign up, I will be sending your own WP test site. This is your site to use for the class, and to practice on for 90 days.

This also includes some short videos, I will send you, showing you how to login and give you a bit of the basics, before the class.

Just some of what we will be covering will include: blogging, writing a good search engine optimized article, what is search engine optimization and why do you need it? What is the difference between a page and a post? Do I have to blog?

You will learn how to correctly add images and name them. All the parts of the dashboard and back end.

Even if you have been using your website, this is a great place to learn more and refresh what you already know.

After each section of the hands on presentation, we have a Q&A.

At the end of the training, Mary E. Knippel, a writing coach, former journalist and editor, will discuss with you:

writing posts, blogging, how to stay motivated, how to tap into your creative side and ongoing ideas for your website.

Sometimes we just run out of steam, and Mary will help you dig into that creative mind we all have.

Thank you,
Linda Lee

Sharon McKellar, Oakland Public Librarian will speak about new ways to read, including eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, and online reading and will give insight into what types of books (genre, age range etc.) get more use digitally. She will also address impacts these new “reading technologies” have on libraries, librarians, and a population with uneven access to digital resources and will shed light on how libraries are facing these impacts, both good and bad.  Following the talk there will be time for questions.

Sharon McKellar has been a librarian with the Oakland Public Library since 2003, serving as a children’s librarian, a branch manager, and currently as the Community Relations Librarian.  She is a reader, a writer, and an excited member of the 2015 Caldecott Selection Committee.

Literacy advocate, playwright, radio show host Kim McMillon says:

Saturday, June 29, 2013  and  Saturday, July 13, 2013
1:00pm to 4:00pm PST
LINES & LETTERS: A Poetry Workshop with a Postal Platform We’ll be exploring how letter writing can catalyze new poems, and fresh ways of observing the world around us, and kick-starting ways of creating new poems. – How does your writing change if you have to address a particular person in your life? – How does your identity change as you address different people? – How can our daily observations turn into poetry? We’ll also look at the work of Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell (about 25% of workshop time) and how their 30 year correspondence influenced their writing.
Our workshop will provide a unique opportunity to work with other poets from the class and try out real-life letter-writing partnerships.
**********************************************************
This workshop is running in conjunction with Berkeley Rep’s play Dear Elizabeth, Sarah Ruhl’s play based on the correspondence between Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop. Workshop open to poets of all ages. Dates: Saturday 29 June   and   Saturday 13 July —   1:00-4:00pm both days $86 covers both sessions plus a half-priced ticket to the play Dear Elizabeth. **********************************************************
WORKSHOP LEADER: Pireeni Sundaralingam was educated at Oxford and has held fellowships from PEN USA (in poetry) and the Berlin Arts Academy (in interdisciplinary thinking). She is co-editor of Indivisible: An Anthology of Contemporary South Asian American Poetry, which won both the PEN Oakland and the N. California Book Award in 2011. Her own poetry has been published in journals such as Ploughshares (USA), Cyphers (Ireland) and Karavan (Sweden), anthologies by W.W.Norton, Prentice Hall and Macmillan, and translated into five languages. She was recently selected for the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Individual Artist Commission (2013/14), and is an Associate Professor in the Writing & Consciousness MFA program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

**********************************************************
I had a chance to chat with Pireeni Sundaralingam last year when Kim McMillon pitched us to “Bay Sunday” producer Akilah Bolden-Monifa and subsequently “Bay Sunday” host Frank Mallicoat (3 time Emmy Award journalist) interviewed Pireeni Sundaralingam, Joan Gelfand, Ishmael Reed, and yours truly Teresa LeYung-Ryan.
Cheers to Pireeni and everyone  who will be in her workshops!
