#HFGather: Claribel Ortega on Immersive Book Launches and Virtual Visits

Apr 1, 2021 | HFGather, Latinx Voices, The Business of Publishing

Claibel Ortega (claribelortega.com) joined us for a lively discussion about putting on immersive virtual visits, whether they be author events or school visits. Some suggestions:

  • Design eye-catching graphics to share on social media to promote your event
  • Find co-hosts to liven up the event with different voices
  • Don’t be afraid to have fun with your presentation
  • Don’t make it longer than it needs to be
  • Be prepared, and test your technology beforehand
