Have you ever noticed…?
Have you ever noticed how sometimes when you are writing, the more you struggle, the more difficult it is to find the words? Paradoxically, some of the best pieces are those that come with almost no effort. You may have wondered why some days you can sweat over the keyboard for hours, only to produce an awkward paragraph or two. On other occasions the words seem to appear like magic, without any effort. And amazingly these pieces can be your best work. So how can you call on this energy and exploit it more readily?
After the course:
- You will feel more confident about yourself and your ability to communicate.
- You will look forward to writing jobs and tackle them with ease – even if writing has previously been a challenge.
- You will know how to engage readers, customers and clients by communicating in a more human way.
- Procrastination will be a thing of the past and you will produce more powerful text, often in less than half the time
- An ideal route to a “writing-with-attitude” style for blogging or social media, or for anyone wanting to make technical or financial copy more engaging.

What Delegates Say About This Workshop
I would recommend spending a day with Judi to revisit how you write. This morning alone I have churned out A3 poster artwork for a baby charity, written a piece of PR on carbon literacy for a conservation charity and blogged for webinar events for another client.

I’ve done so many webinars and courses recently and this really was one of the best. I liked the fact it was a challenging course, and that so much of it was practical.

My writing has already improved as a direct result of this course. The main benefits – a boost in confidence, a drive to get stuck in and a renewed zeal for writing. Pretty much exactly what I’d hoped for.
