PRE-CONFERENCE ADD-ON WORKSHOP - Must Purchase a Create Good Ticket to Attend

The 7 Styles of Writing Every Nonprofit Communicator Should Master

A “Coach and Be Coached” Pre-Conference Workshop with Kivi Leroux Miller, Founder and CEO of Nonprofit Marketing Guide

Wednesday, May 8 from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.

Registration and Warm-Up Exercises from 1:00 – 1:30. The workshop will begin promptly at 1:30.

$90 per person. Limited to 40 participants.

Most nonprofit communicators consider themselves to be good writers. But what really sets apart the great writers in the nonprofit world is mastery of seven distinct types of copywriting. Odds are you are great at a few of the seven styles, but you could use some polishing on the others.

During this workshop, we’ll review today’s best practices for seven kinds of nonprofit writing: Microcontent, Storytelling, Donor-Centered Copywriting, News Writing, Conversion Copywriting, Lifestyle Writing, and Thought Leadership.

We’ll explore
  • What’s unique about each style
  • Dos and don’ts when writing in each style
  • What’s required to properly repurpose content between the styles
We’ll put this knowledge into practice by improving lots of real-world examples of lackluster nonprofit copy.

Following an afternoon cupcake break, you will coach others and be coached yourself using information gathered in a pre-workshop survey and writing samples you’ll bring with you. Don’t worry – we’ll coach you on how to be a writing coach (another great skill you can take back to work with you)! You’ll work in small groups to provide feedback to others on the styles where you are strongest, and then you’ll get feedback from stronger writers on styles where you feel weakest.

We’ll close the day with recommended resources to help you continue to master the seven styles.
