Blogging for Writers
From the Willamette Writers website
On Tuesday, May 3rd, at the Old Church in downtown Portland, Willamette Writers welcomes Jocelyn Mozak, WordPress web designer and founder of Mozak Design, who will talk with us about her favorite author web platform — WordPress.
Jocelyn knows that authors would rather focus their time and energy on writing, not on the design or coding of a website. She also knows how important websites are for author platforms!
In this engaging presentation, Jocelyn will walk us through why WordPress is the most viable option, what writers should include in the design of their site, which writer-friendly WordPress plug-ins are best to use (and what plug-ins are!), and share some exciting upgrades and ideas for the more experienced user. You will walk away with the motivation and tools to successfully launch your own WordPress website.
Jocelyn Mozak was born and raised on the East Coast. She attended Cornell University, graduating with her Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and continued on to Stanford University, where she obtained a Master’s in Electrical Engineering. While her education in engineering refined her technical skills, it is her passion for what she does and the people she helps that makes Jocelyn an outstanding web designer.
When Jocelyn isn’t busy coding CSS or reading PHP, you can find her chilling at a coffee shop, getting a pedicure or heading out for a run. Visit www.mozakdesign.com to learn more.
We hope you can join us at the Old Church, SW 11th & Clay, in downtown Portland. As always, the doors open at 6:30 and the meeting starts at 7:00.
