When discussing new technologies even the most computer savvy of us can feel overwhelmed by all of the new upgrades, versions, gadgets and gizmos. How do you post podcasts to your web site? What is the best way to archive back issues on your web site?  To help us navigate this complicated and ever-changing world of technology, we asked Veronica Liu of Steven Stories Press, one of the key planners of the convening in October, to provide us with a toolkit: a list of resources to help get you started as you plan your literary organization’s technology strategy. In this toolkit Veronica explains various methods for presenting audio and video on your web site, how to archive print content on your site, how to file share in the office, and email marketing options.  Huge thanks go to Veronica and Billy Merrell of the Academy of American Poets for providing this helpful guide.
