Writing Compelling Online Content

In today’s content-driven world, we’re continually bombarded with news, information, advice and opinion. So how do writers of company newsletters, magazines and blogs make their words stand out among the noise?

 

Too many companies publish boring, preachy and inaccessible content. This one-day workshop will show you how to create publications and blog posts that are interesting, relevant and engaging.

What to expect

Using a mix of examples, discussions and exercises, ‘Writing compelling online content’ takes you through every aspect of finding, adapting, writing and illustrating content people want to read.

Working with your own and a selection of other company publications and blogs, you’ll analyse what makes content newsworthy and engaging. You’ll develop a new piece of content from scratch and take part in at least two writing exercises. You’ll receive encouraging feedback from your trainer and other members of the workshop. And you’ll work in groups to create the best design and layout for your new content.

To ensure everyone receives personal guidance and feedback, this workshop is limited to only six participants.
