Do You Need a Professional Writer to Speak to Your Writing Class?
I've said before that my ultimate goal is to have my book, Write Like You Mean It: Mastering Your Passion For The Written Word, become a key educational tool in every high school and college writing class in the country. One way to spread the word is to speak to those classes and share tips and tricks I've learned throughout my nearly 25-year career.
I'd love for your class to be the next place I visit – so all of us can write like we mean it!
I'm interested in speaking to any of the following writing classes or writing-based entities:
Creative writing classes
Creative writing centers and organizations
Online groups for writers
Personal development courses
And so many more ...
Tell Me More About Write Like You Mean It
Write Like You Mean It is the next great book for writers. It is for writers of all experience levels, genres, and professional pursuits (journalists, college writers, aspiring freelancers, future novelists, etc.), and perhaps what makes it so relatable is that it isn't written in a boring textbook kind of way.
Using stories from my early years and frequent foibles as a journalist, I equip aspiring writers with trade tips to learn, tools to utilize, and lessons to write stronger content. Simple steps in each chapter break down the productivity practices of creatives, the organization needed to get to the finish line, and the purpose behind it all: drawing readers in with quality content and style. I discuss the intentional processes behind organizing ideas, conducting interviews, beating writer's block, networking, editing, and publishing.
The point is that whether you're an old hand at writing, a novice, or a college professor aspiring to write full-time, this book is for you, so you too can Write Like You Mean It!
Thank You to the Guyer High School Journalism Class
As you can tell from the group picture at the top of this blog post, I've already begun speaking to classes. On February 11, I visited with the Guyer High School journalism class to talk about how to perform successful interviews. Everyone had a great time, and my hope is that each student walked away with something they can incorporate into their writing career.
It is truly a blessing to share my knowledge with the next generation of writers. They even have their very own "class copy" of Write Like You Mean It.
