Communicators need to know how to capture attention with a strong opening and how to write compelling copy that does more than inform; it captivates. AP veteran Ken O’Quinn is back to share techniques to help you organize ideas, write succinctly, and bring writing alive with precise details.
In this half-day workshop, you will learn how to:
- Use good news judgment
- Organize what’s in your head
- Package information for easy readability
- Craft leads that make someone want to keep reading
- Open a persuasive message
- Use a three-step editing process
The interactive workshop will explain subtle devices you can use to create lively, colorful and easy-to-consume drafts. Ken will share the techniques of Wall Street Journal writers to simplify information and help you create quotes that are informative yet human.
