    Learn the easiest way to build and maintain a website so you can focus on what you do best: writing. Tom Flanagan will teach you how to purchase a domain name and web hosting; how to build a beautiful, mobile-friendly website; and how to add search engine optimization so that your website will be found!

    This class is excellent for authors who have no website at all, as well as for authors who have one but don't know what to do with it.

    This workshop will take place over 4 weeks, and by the end of the series, you will have an author website that works for you.

    The cost of purchasing a domain name and web hosting is not included; please make sure to have extra money set aside if you have not already purchased one. 

    This workshop will be recorded, so if you have to miss a class, you can catch up on your own time.

    Tom Flanagan is the Chief Innovation Officer at The Group in Fort Collins where he oversees marketing and technology. A graduate of the New England Institute of Technology, he has always been fascinated with how people interact with technology. Prior to joining the Group, Tom was a Technologist in Silicon Valley, and a featured speaker at Apple, Google, and Microsoft.

    Tom's first book, "The Potato Puff Surprise" is a coming-of-age story about growing up, battling bullies, and dabbling in the dark art of home improvement. He is currently hard at work writing his first novel.

    in a non-competitive format
    to a receptive audience.

    from 7pm to close,
    Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House
    invites the great writers community of Fort Collins
    — and beyond —
    to share, connect, and grow in their literary fashion.

    Each month there will be a rotating co-host
    so leaders in the community
    will encourage more of our community to lead!
