POWO, Sep 17 2011 @ iHub
Poets and Writers Online (POWO) is a forum for Poets and Writers with blogs and those with an interest in using the internet in promotion of, or as a platform for their writing.
The next POWO meetup will be on Saturday,17th September at the iHub (11am – 3pm) and it will be a talk on Open Source software as well as a workshop giving technical hands-on experience. The topic on next meeting is: What is Open Source and what opportunities does it offer me as an online Creative Writer? The main aim is to bring the Tech and Creative Writing communities together and possibly create a synergy (Skills plus Content)
POWO Seeks to:
1. Introduce Creative Writers to the opportunities available online and also through technology
2. Help them utilize the tools available either as a platform for their writing or as a means to build their brand online(blogs, facebook, twitter, contributions to online magazines)
3. Bring together Poets and Writers through a meetup that happens every 2nd month to discuss, learn and share
4. Bring together the creative and tech communities and see what collaborations can be built from the two groups.
