Remote (OCWW may add a live event with separate registration) Writers at all stages can benefit from building a platform, engaging with other readers and writers, and gaining recognition through branding and extracurricular writing. This presentation will touch on websites and online platforms in general, with a focus on how to engage a following of book lovers within Instagram's #bookstagram community. 

Kimmery Martin is an emergency medicine doctor-turned novelist whose works of medical fiction have been praised by The Harvard Crimson, Southern Living, The Charlotte Observer and The New York Times, among others.
