I’m back again with the WriteWords blog this week because I felt moved by the current situation to reach out to you, in the truest sense of the word. If you are in self-isolation as a result of the Coronavirus, my heart goes out to you. And to the rest of you, I hope that all of you stay safe and well.
I wish I could do more to help, but all I can offer are my words, so that’s what I’m going to offer you. Or at least my knowledge of what to do with words. I’m going to be offering free creative writing classes to writers and free content creation classes to small businesses. A lot of these classes are being done in groups but mine will be one to one, so you can have my individual attention, for what it’s worth.
I reckon you’ll enjoy my creative writing classes if:
- you’ve always had a secret desire to write and you’ve decided that now is the time to act on that desire.
- you’re already writing and you want to use the extra time you have to develop your writing further.
My writing classes will take various forms, depending on what sort of person you are and how you like to learn.
- You can have interactive sessions using the videoconferencing app of your choice (Skype, Zoom etc.) where you can do writing exercises in real time or discuss ideas you’d like to develop.
- If you’re a bit old-fashioned and you like to do things in your own time, you can do an email correspondence course, where I’ll send you writing exercises and you can return them for feedback.
- And if you’re working on a specific project, you can avail of a critiquing service for up to five poems or 3,000 words of a story.
If you run a small business, it can be hard to find time to write content. There are always more urgent things on the to-do list. This time is no challenging for you, but there may be opportunities in that challenge and one of those opportunities is to work on your content creation skills.
I can help you with that in the following ways. I can:
- do a videoconferencing session with you to help you gather ideas for writing content like blog posts and website content.
- look over content you’ve already written and give you feedback.
- send you PowerPoint presentations about different aspects of content creation.
I hope all of this will help you at least to pass the time during this strange period, and who knows, you may come up with a masterpiece out of all this, or killer content if you’re in business. At least it’s a way to turn an incredible challenge into something positive.
If you’re interested in the words I can offer you, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me (Derbhile) on 087 6959799.
