Webinar: Canva Basics for Writers

Instructor: Cat Rambo

Next Webinar Date: Saturday, December 18, 2021, 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific Time. 

One of the tools I am always recommending to writers is Canva.com, which lets you create terrific images for your marketing needs. I use it for every graphic I produce for the school, my books, or just random memes. But where do you begin?

What is Canva? A robust platform for designing your own marketing graphics for social media, your website, advertising, and other venues. And best of all, it’s got a free version that’s pretty darn good for writers who need to make graphics on the fly for their marketing efforts. I’ll show you that but also talk about why I thought it worth paying the cost of a professional account.

We will learn:

  • How to get started and the basic sections of the platform
  • How to upload an image like a book cover or headshot
  • How to create an image sized for Facebook or Twitter
  • How to create an animated ad for Facebook or Twitter
  • How to share an image via Canva on social media and email

This is a webinar that will happen on December 18, 1-2:30 PM Pacific time via Zoom. There will be an optional 30 minute Q&A afterward. Cost is $25.


To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you are registering for.

  • If you’re a new student, please let me know how you found out about the classes!

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for multiple classes.
