The Write Tools: Part II
In today’s world of message clutter, getting your organization’s message across through storytelling has never been more important. Join IABC St. Louis, in conjunction with WeissWrite, in October for a half-day writing workshop featuring Dick Weiss, an award-winning writer and editor.
With more than three decades of experience in telling stories at American newspapers, Dick will lead a hands-on workshop that will teach you how to improve your storytelling. This half-day workshop includes:
Attendees will be requested to submit a written sample prior to the workshop, which will be used to create an effective seminar tailored to the audience’s needs. During the workshop, you will receive personalized feedback about what you are doing well and opportunities for improvement. The Write Tools: Part II is a follow-up to our one-day writing workshop held in March. You told us you wanted more. More in-depth. More discussion. More hands on. The Write Tools: Part II is a writing workshop that takes in-depth to a new level!
