Event description

Description

Improve your writing skills in this hands-on course

This fun and practical workshop will help you become a better and more confident writer.

It covers:

  • crafting short snappy sentences
  • setting the right tone for your audience
  • writing in plain English – even when covering complex issues
  • creating great headlines
  • writing intros that pull readers in
  • how to connect paragraphs seamlessly
  • planning and structuring different kinds of articles
  • cutting your own copy
  • editing copy
  • grammar and punctuation.

This course also looks at how writing for online can be different than for print, covering key web writing areas such as:

  • writing headlines that work online
  • how to write links (and why "click here" links are bad)
  • search engine optimisation (SEO) writing tips
  • email marketing.

There’s also an optional media component that looks at:

  • interviewing techniques
  • handling media requests
  • pitching stories to the media.

If you’re not interested in the media component then that’s fine – exercises tailored specifically for you will be provided instead.

Who can benefit from this course

The short answer is: everyone.

The reason is that I make a point of keeping the class size small (only nine places are available) so that I can get to know each participant and make sure the course will help them. The class is filled with practical exercises that allow me to provide individual feedback for every participant.

You will learn how to write, structure and edit copy whether it's for journalism, marketing or business.

If you would like to make sure that a certain topic is covered, then feel free to email me at dan@mediasurvival.com and I'll get back to you.

All participants will receive a handbook and a certificate on completion.
