FWA Meeting April 9th with T.J. Waters

April St. Pete FWA Meeting

For our upcoming meeting on Thursday, April 9th, T.J. Waters will be speaking. As usual, we meet at the Main Branch St. Pete Library at 6 PM. Networking begins at 5:30 PM. This meeting is always open to the public.

Topic: Social Media in Simple Terms

As writers, we need to use social media, but how many of us know what to post, and where?  It’s how we keep in touch with fans, but how can we maximize our social media bang for the time-based buck we have to spend doing it?

Author T.J. Waters will offer tips as well as the basics of what you need to know about the landscape of social media, and the way to best utilize social media tools to connect with fans and potential readers.


Author T.J. WATERS resides in St Petersburg with his wife and their two children. He previously worked as a Senior Consultant in Intelligence Operations for U.S. Special Operations Command. Prior to that he was a Sr. Counterintelligence Analyst for U.S. Central Command, served undercover for the Central Intelligence Agency, and was Vice President for an intelligence consulting firm. He enjoyed a successful private sector career before his government service, including with Celotex Corporation, Lexis-Nexis, and BASF.

Waters spent five years as an adjunct professor in the Intelligence Management and Analysis program at Eckerd College. When he's not working, he enjoys volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tampa Bay.
