Marjorie and Shannon Okey Team Up to Promote Her Talk at SXSW!

Shannon Okey, Publisher at Cooperative Press of Lakewood, Ohio and general all-around good buddy to Marjorie, spoke at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Conference in March. Shannon and Marjorie teamed up to promote her talk and get her famous, at least in Lakewood! She was featured in the Lakewood Observer, Lakewood Patch, which was then picked up by Women Business Info, and Knitty Blog. She was also interviewed in Knit Buzz.

A great piece by Jarrod Zickefoose, my colleague at the Sun Newspapers, is here, and Shannon’s own blog, Knitgrrl, has some great comments on her experiences, plus wonderfully vibrant pictures. The audio of her talk at SXSW is available here.

Marjorie Preston is one of the featured writers on the site which just went live this Spring. The site has garnered lots of press, and this was a group effort, even though Marjorie sent the press release around to local journalists.

The site was discussed in the Cleveland Scene, David Hansen’s blog, West Life, The Cleveland Jewish News, and WDOK‘s website. Even Scott Suttell of Crain’s Cleveland Business tweeted about us!

Marjorie’s first review on the site should go up within the week. Check for her review of “God of Carnage” at Dobama Theatre soon.
