In an age of emojis, the written word still matters.
Words are the foundation upon which we make voting and purchasing decisions, donate to causes and educate upcoming generations. Written words aren't superfluous or anachronistic. They're elemental.
Instagram photos don’t stand alone. Videos need scripts. Podcasts need outlines and questions.
Words change the world. Or at least our little part of it. That’s why it’s essential we harness their power and avoid pitfalls that short circuit high-impact writing.
In this fast-paced presentation, you'll learn how to:
· Determine your goal.
· Identify your audience.
· Outline your project.
· Write in your own voice.
· Eschew corporate speak.
· Efficiently proof and edit.
Life’s too short for boring, lifeless prose.
Write a post and change the world.
