Volunteer call-out: Social media team

We’re putting together a social media team in the lead-up to our conference in October.

Our legendary team for the last conference blogged and tweeted and posted their way to our hearts, and this year we’d like to do it all over again. The social media team updates conference participants, publishes great content about historical fiction and authors, and generally makes a noise about historical fiction – online.

Opportunities will be available to raise your own profile, so if you’d like to interview your favourite authors, expand your literary CV, and support the HNSA, we’d love to hear from you.

We have a few different roles, so if any of these interest you, get in touch with us. Just send your expression of interest to: Elizabeth Jane Corbett, Social Media Coordinator, marketing@hnsa.org.au

Our team of bloggers will be responsible for scheduled author interviews and/or panel profiles which will be shared regularly on all HNSA social media platforms. Volunteers will be identified by a short author bio at the conclusion of each post.

Facebook volunteers

The selected team of volunteers will be responsible for scheduling twice daily, history related Facebook posts and responding to activity on a pre-determined day of the week, on our Facebook page.
Requisite skills:
• A Facebook account
• A working knowledge of simple Facebook scheduling (or at least a willingness to learn)

Twitter volunteers

Selected volunteers will be responsible for scheduling history/historical fiction related Tweets on a pre-determined day of the week.
Requisite skills:
