I’m going to be honest – at some level, I’m using this blog as my own personal sounding board. I write about what I’m thinking about, what’s bothering me, and what I need to figure out for Ooligan Press, for The Grove Review, for Carol White Marketing, or for my job.

Right now, I’m trying to figure out how to market The Grove Review’s Issue 5.

Here’s my list so far, in no particular order:

  1. Press Release for Issue 5’s release and party
  2. Create new website, with blog, and get articles from past contributors
  3. Plan a release party
  4. Create a Facebook plan/Possibly also Twitter
  5. Schedule/register for local conferences
  6. Send a mailing to current and past subscribers and contributors
  7. Set up e-issues for online purchase
  8. Schedule/plan a reading for authors
  9. Get reviews (post on website and contributors’ websites)
    (Design ad/link for contributors’ websites)
  10. Create swag for conferences and release party (bookmarks)

And how does that sound? It seems to me like this plan should appeal to those who love online outlets while not leaving out those who still like getting old-fashioned pieces of mail. I’d love some feedback.

Hey All,

Sorry I didn’t post anything yesterday. I’ve been a little busy, but I hope to post something at leastTGR cover once a day in the future! As always, I’m happy to post things that are happening in the Portland literary community.

But, here’s some great personal news! First, this blog just got named a “Must Read Portland Book Blog” on Reading Local: Portland. That’s pretty flattering.

Second, I just accepted the position of Managing Editor of The Grove Review, and our newest issue will be available in June. This is an amazing publication, with a lot of extremely talented writers and artists, and our submission guidelines are on the site. We accept short stories, poetry, and art.

Well, hope you’re having a great day,

Maureen
