About this event

Want your readers to engage more?

Then this two-part content writing workshop is for you.

Dates: Tuesday 8th and 15th June 2021, 10am - 1pm

Please ensure you can attend both dates - refunds cannot be given if you only attend one day.

The trainer will facilitate a series of writing exercises, designed specifically to help improve skills for writing attractive and engaging content for the digital world.

The exercises aim to help with the writing of real life stories and case studies from frontline work in the third sector, and with blogs, but they also encourage new ways of thinking about writing.

This two-part workshop will encourage would-be content writers to break some of the bad writing habits they have learned at school, college, uni and work, and be BRAVE when it comes to crafting content.

The trainer will outline why you have to to be brave to cut through the sheer volume of online content and have any chance of attracting (and keeping) readers.

The workshops will show how well-written pieces can play a big part in bringing a voluntary sector organisation’s work to life and why, by doing that, there’s real scope to attract new and future users/clients, plus new audiences and potential funders.

This session will be delivered online using Zoom. If you don't have an account please read the FAQs section for more info. For the trainer to full engage with the participants you will be required to have your camera turned on.
