Everyone needs to write well today. Whether you’re a freelance photographer or a corporate CEO, your clients and your community want to know what you think – and with the advent of social media, they expect you to say it clearly, succinctly and often.

This one-day workshop will explore simple ways of planning what to write, and help you get to grips with the tools and techniques for producing sharp, compelling copy.

Whether you’re blogging, keeping your website up to date, submitting articles, sharpening up your twitter feed, or just sending out better pitches and proposals – this workshop is for you.
