workshops

2Write offers writing and design workshops for individuals and groups. We enjoy sharing our skills with NGOs, small businesses and community organisations.

We can show you how to

  • write well: say what you mean in clear, simple language
  • write letters, reports and formal  documents: be professional, get rid of jargon and fluff
  • write newsletters and magazines: promote your organisation, inform your members and lift morale
  • write media releases and manage the media: face your fears and get your message across
  • write creatively, both fiction and non-fiction
  • adjust your writing for the web, including Facebook, blogs and organisational websites.

Our courses are tailor-made to suit your organisation, subject matter, style and audience.  We provide written course material and ongoing support.

Please get in touch with us to discuss your training needs.
