Write Better Today

Whether you send out blog posts, deliver feature copy, or want to polish your pitch on your web site, this three-hour interactive workshop will give you tools to improve your writing skills. The workshop will focus on building story structures that capture readers’ attention, strengthening your transitions for clarity and focus, and improving your selfediting proficiency to get powerful results.

If you panic at the tyranny of a blank screen or simply need to be reminded of what you already know – and may ignore – join Mary-Kate Mackey for a fun, engaging workshop. Learn three practical techniques you can put to use immediately. You’ll be able to juggle words with more confidence and ease.
