Creative Writing For Business

One Day Course

Overview

Many of us enjoy the creative possibilities of writing. All too often, however, the writing we have to do in our work - from marketing material, corporate newsletters, sales information or web copy - can come across dull, lifeless and far from creative.

This training course offers practical exercises and advice from industry experts, along with tips and techniques to develop confidence in your powers of self-expression. This writing course will also enable you to harness the creativity in your line of work.

Bring along some examples of your own work - and a sense of fun on this One Day creative writing course. You need no previous creative writing experience to attend this course.
