Patreon: the evolution of supporting the arts
17 Aug 2019, Saturday 11:00 – 11:50, Wicklow Hall 2A (Dances) (CCD)
Serialised fiction, topical articles, featured interviews, and more! Patreon provides a new way for authors to generate income and for fans to support creators. But what is Patreon? How does it work and can you really make money? What expectations do people bring with them? And is there a dark side to publishing on the platform? Who owns the published material, and what part does copyright play?

Authors and social media: friends or foes?
17 Aug 2019, Saturday 20:00 – 20:50, Wicklow Hall-1 (CCD)
Join us as we explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of the relationship between authors and social media. Where should you be? What should you do? And how much is too much? From Twitter to Facebook, via Instagram: how to make social media work for you and avoid digging your own digital grave in the process.
