I can write for you -- or I can teach you how it's done. Once you understand the tips and tricks of engaging, quality writing the possibilities will be endless for you. Business professionals will grasp a unique position to establish their authority. Nonfiction writers will be able to tell a story from their individual perspective.
I specialize in Nonfiction and business writing. I just can't seem to learn enough. There's really no topic that bores me. With 30 years of professional business experience, I have a broad understanding of global business topics and technology. Nonfiction and business writing are unique disciplines. It takes a bit of courage to write nonfiction.
Here's an example for you. You might like to write a fiction story about a frog walking into a bar. The reader very likely will suspend disbelief and imagine a frog in a bar. If you choose to write about the bar your uncle owned on the south side of Chicago in the '50s this story may open up debate, even among your own family members. People who lived during 50s, and knew your uncle, may have different memories, steeped in emotion, of the what occurred there. Your story must be written though, or it will be lost. There are many layers to a story and we each see them through our own lens. We need to hear every story possible to capture the fullest picture possible.
You may want to write about owning and managing a bar. There are lots of ways to tackle the same task. The methodology you choose may not be a popular path. However, if you have information that will help others establish a bar or you want to share what you learned, it's important to do so. If you provide businesses services owning and managing bars, you'll now have a manual for your customers and prospects to reference. You'll also capture a point in time, as methods change.
To help writers break through the barriers of writing I've established three workshops
Be a Better Writer
This workshop is designed for associations and groups. The content provided will help any business writer influence and persuade their audience. Who can benefit from this course:
Those that would like to refresh or create their online presence
Those that would like to more pursuasive emails
Those that would like to write better pitches or presentations
My next presentation, a Lunch & Learn, will be on 5/13/2021 at the American Photographic Artists Association.
To inquire about workshops please take a minute to complete the contact form.
The First Draft Group is for any writer who would like positive feedback on their writing. People convinced that they 'cannot write' come away inspired and ready to explore the work they've been meaning to get to. Please take a minute to read the rave reviews.
Inquire about the next complimentary workshop here.
Word Games are fun, easy to implement events that engage all attendees. Unlock your team's creativity with stories and games. Learn to create impromptu stories based on creative suggestions. There are no wrong with these stories, they are just fun. Bring your favorite writing tool, paper, laptop or tablet to participate in the exercises. Draft Stories alone and in a group.
Alicia will demonstrate the appreciative feedback method, so all writers will learn to love and honor what is right about their writing. Schedule a Word Games event by clicking here.
