Author Pauline Wiles will teach writers what they need to know to create an effective website in a Zoom meeting on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m.

Wiles will present “Websites That Wow Readers ... how to create or update your online home” at the Tri-Valley Writers October meeting.

If you have struggled with planning or implementing your website, this meeting is for you. Wiles will explain how to simplify the project and avoid common design pitfalls. You will learn how to go about creating a website. If you’d rather not do it yourself, Wiles will pass along insider tips for working with a professional.
