About This Event / Session

It's frustrating for beginning writers who want to hone their craft, but aren't given much direction beyond "write every day," and "read a lot." Most so-called content marketing secrets are nothing more than "write good stuff," which is completely unhelpful. Wouldn't it be great if there was just one list of tips you could follow?

This session will look at different writing secrets professionals use to produce tight, interesting content and break them down into simple steps everyone can use to improve their own writing. We'll learn how to cut out unnecessary language and filler words, how to harness metaphors and similes to better understand complex ideas, and which grammar rules you should ignore.

We'll look at some unusual advice that every professional writer knows (and even does), why inspiration is the downfall of many writers, and one psychological trick that will cut years off your learning curve.

Attendees will learn:

  1. How journalists learn to write short, punchy sentences that convey maximum impact.
  2. How to tighten their writing to say more in fewer words
  3. How to use fiction-writing storytelling structures to make your content more interesting and accessible.
  4. One psychological hack that will cut years off your learning curve.
