Coffee House Writers’ Advertising team members are our planning, marketing, and social media specialists. While each member has specific duties within the advertising department, they all collectively work together to ensure a smooth-running ship. Our advertising team shares all of our writers’ published pieces on our team’s social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram) as well as creates informational videos (YouTube) and design graphics. Our advertisers manage our shop, where our team merchandise can be found, and collaborate on work for our many anthology pieces.
