Authors are often expected to make their own marketing graphics (especially once the launch buzz is over). Canva is a graphic design program aimed at complete beginners. It is very powerful, but can be overwhelming.

Join SoA Member Jeevani Charika as she leads this talk aiming to show you how to make scroll-stopping animations and graphics so that you can advertise your book on social media.



  • Welcome, introductions and housekeeping from Sophia A Jackson – Head of Events, SoA (3 mins)
  • Presentation by Jeevani Charika (60 mins)
  • Comfort break (5 mins)
  • Q&A with audience – moderated by Sophia A Jackson, SoA (20 mins)
  • Summary and closing comments (2 mins)


Who is this session for?

The session is for authors who have used Canva before for static posts and want to know how to take their use of the app to the next level.


What will this session cover?

This session will cover:

  • An introduction to the things you can make in Canva – from social media posts to bookmarks and other merch
  • A step-by-step tutorial on how to make a short, animated ad
  • A step-by-step tutorial on how to make an animated carousel showing off all your books
