Event Details

Writing-process workshop in Portland

Learn to Write Better, Easier and Faster

Workshop Agenda

Writing is hard because we weren’t taught how to write. Instead, we were taught how to edit: how to spell, punctuate and use the right grammar.

But there is a how to writing. In fact, following a few simple steps in the right order can help you come up with fresher, more creative ideas. It can also help you write better, easier and faster.

In this class, you’ll master a 5-step creative process and a 3-step writing process that will help you save time and energy while crafting more engaging messages. It will also help you experience the joy of what creativity experts call “flow” — when your fingers fly across the keyboard to keep up with all of the great words pouring out of your head.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Work with — not against — your brain.
  • Go beyond Just the facts, Ma’am.
  • Practice what you learn.
  • Edit before you write.
  • Write. Really write.
  • Spend less time obsessing over word choice.
