Please join Erin Yates, Administrative Assistant with The Nonprofit Partnership, on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM for "Compelling Copy."

Is your writing putting people to sleep? Do you feel like something gets lost when you try to put your ideas into words? Do red, blue, and green underlines plague your Word documents?

Whether you’re totally new to professional writing or a seasoned expert looking for a brief refresher, this workshop includes information and strategies for writers at nearly every level.

Fear not: there will be no discussion of dangling participles or type 3 conditional verb tenses. This session is not a comprehensive guide to error-free composition, but rather a discussion of how attendees can work to enhance the content of their professional writing.

The learning objectives for this session include: 

  1. To discuss the general dos and don’ts of professional writing
  2. To consider the basics of compelling copy and how they apply to different mediums, such as thank you letters and newsletters
  3. To equip attendees with strategies and tools that they can use throughout the writing process, from drafting to revision

This session is geared towards social media managers, marketing and PR professionals, or anyone else interested in livening up their professional writing. 

The level of learning for this workshop is beginner (or you can think of it as a refresher).
