BECOMING A BETTER WRITER

“Journalism is literature in a hurry.” – Matthew Arnold

What makes good writing? And how can we do it quicker and more effectively? What are the pitfalls to avoid if we want to avoid boring our audience to death?

We all want to be able to write better, but good writing, like professional sports, is often the triumph of perspiration over inspiration – a good idea is only the start.

I offer two courses – one half-day or one full-day – that will give you some of the tools and strategies you need to make your writing clearer, better and quicker.

Both courses cover the following five topics, and previous experience shows that there can be some wild twists and turns along the way:

  • What story am I trying to tell?
  • Who am I telling it to, and why?
  • How many words should I write – and which ones should I choose?
  • How do I know if what I’m writing is any good?
  • What can I do to keep getting better?

Courses are usually booked by companies or organisations, but if you have a few people that are interested we can do that too. They also come with a lifetime support guarantee on social media, so you can always ask questions to ensure that you are staying on the right (write?) track.

I also offer tailored courses for those who want to know more about filming, editing and presenting, as well as workshops for those who appear regularly on TV or radio.
