Today I want to let you know about some of the exciting events happening in Second Life right now, particularly the MWGA Expo.

The top names in media are participating making it an invaluable opportunity for networking.  If you are trying to promote your book, art, blog, etc. I urge you to participate.




Norfolk Slim City – MWGA will be hosting the first in-world
Second Life media expo June 1 through July 8, bringing together Second Life’s
major media all under one roof.

“MWGA created an annual media expo to celebrate business as
a whole in Second Life,” MWGA owner Lyric Navarita said. “This is a way for
businesses, as well as the publishing industry, to get together and mingle with
guests on a more personable level. I hope this expo opens a new form of communication
and sparks interest to be more involved in what our platform has to offer – an
opportunity to learn more about the publishing industry through our workshops,
engage with those within the industry via social and networking activities and
celebrate the achievements of businesses in Second Life.”

Several workshops will be offered on site from professionals
in the media industry on a range of topics from their experiences in their
fields, production and publishing and distribution technologies. A final
workshop will also include applying guided imaginary to the SL experience from
Pura Vida Wellness Resort.

“The MWGA Expo is a unique event raising awareness of
the talent and diversity of media available in SL and will hopefully encourage
new people to participate in this constantly evolving industry,” MWGA
Media Expo participant MANIERA LLC’s COO Aphrodite Brianna said.

Performances will also be held by radio’s KHNY Honey 103
(June 16) and BoSL Radio (June 17) as well as dance troop Dazzlers (July 8). A

their fields at The Rose Theatre. Banquet guest speakers include Avenue Staff
