The "Pens of Steel" Group Discussion Special: What Is A Digital Voice? PART 1
Welcome to the Rise of Digital Voices!
In case you didn't already know, the Internet is FILLED with competing messages. Thanks to the onset of social media platforms, more people than ever have the ability to share their unique voice with the rest of the world. And in doing so, can create online communities where similar minds (and interests) can congregate. To share ideas. To share insights. To share individual stories.
This is the Age of Digital Voices - a time when the gatekeepers of information have been usurped by the end user.
In this very special episode of The Writer's Lens, I sit down with three other creative voices: Brian Del Turco of Jesus Smart: The Podcast and owner/operator of LifeVoiceQuest; Willie Scott co-founder of Better Than Blended and TKI Publishing; and Brent Mclaughlin, aspiring writer. These three gentlemen make up our Cleveland creative group otherwise known as the "Pens of Steel" and for the first time, we are recording our conversation concerning this growing phenomenon of the social media landscape.
This will be the first of a three-part discussion on the topic so stay tuned for more to follow in the coming weeks.
