Pen to Post: Writing Workshop For Bloggers
From Pen to Post: A Writing Workshop for Bloggers
What if you could take your journal and turn it into a series of blog posts? This workshop looks back to the roots of blogging and helps you to define your own writing/blogging style. Evolving as an online diary, blogs truly are a way to share your voice with the world. Trying to find your voice in a world filled with images is hard. So why not create a photo journal that brings together words and images in a way that elevates and brings out the best of both mediums? This workshop will help you to channel your creativity and connect authentic, eloquent text with complimentary photographs to help you share your story and develop your brand.
How it works:
Set-up like a ‘round table,’ this workshop focuses on the process as much as the final product. Using traditional writing exercises, you will learn how to get your authentic voice on paper and then into polished blog posts. Working with images and text you will be given tips and tricks of the trade for developing a blogs and a brand that truly represents you. We'll save a little time for mingling, baked goodies, bubbly, and shopping too!
