How'd You Do That? Tips and Tricks Learned Through the Loft's Wordplay for Great Virtual Conversations
Since the Loft pivoted to move Wordplay, our 100-author book festival online, we've received numerous inquiries about how we pulled it off. As a staff, we don't have the capacity to answer all the questions we're receiving individually, so we thought we'd pull together a webinar session to go over our process.

We'll talk through our programming and format choices, how we connected with speakers and got them on board, and go behind-the-scenes to show you the technology platforms (Crowdcast, Zoom, & OBS), choices, setup, and approaches that helped us deliver our virtual programming. We'll leave time at the end of Q&A.
