Webinar: More Detail, Less Clutter In Your Writing

FRIDAY, October 11th
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Clean, compelling writing relies on strong reporting as much as on artful approaches to the language. Learn how your interviews and research set you up for success at the writing stage, as well as tips for structuring and winnowing your writing. Your readers will be left with stories that are as powerful as they are clear and concise.

Topics to cover:

– Think like a writer when interviewing and researching.

– Simplify your sentence structures when working with complex information.

– Organize stories with intention.

– Evaluate what merits inclusion and what should be cut or handled visually instead.

Deadline to register for the $35 fee is Tuesday, October 8th. A $10 late registration fee begins on Wednesday, October 9th.
