Beginning as a music journalist turned publicist, Kathleen Kaiser’s career spans 40 years of involvement in the most exciting industries of her generation. From rock and roll in the 60s and 70s to the digital/internet revolution of the late 80s and 90s, she has been a marketing professional for Fortune 100 companies, small startups, and nonprofits. In 1993, she opened Kathleen Kaiser & Associates an emerging technology marketing firm, which now focuses on working with the literary and arts nonprofit communities. With four published books and three plays under her belt, Kathleen understands how authors and artists are often confused by the new world of marketing their products and themselves. She aids authors and artists navigate social media, build audiences, and sell works. She is a firm believer in the power of a well-written press release targeted to the correct media.
Kathleen is the Executive Director of the Pacific Institute for Professional Writing (PIPW), producer of the annual 805 Writers’ Conference, President of the Small Publishers, Artists & Writers Network (SPAWN), Past President of the Ventura County Writers Club, and organizer of a monthly literary meeting in Thousand Oaks sponsored by SPAWN and the Independent Writers of Southern California.
