Solutions for Community Groups

Writing Workshops

Writing In the Community

WriteWords is proud to deliver creative writing workshops in a variety of community settings.

These workshops aim to help people experience the joy of expressing themselves through words, regardless of age, background and ability.

We'll create workshops that are tailored to your organisation and its service users. We have completed residencies in schools and delivered workshops and hospital settings, but we specialise in working with people with disabilities.

Organisations we have collaborated with include Waterford Intellectual Disability Association, the National Council for the Blind, Waterford Healing Arts Trust and Waterford Libraries.

Content Training for Non-Profits

WriteWords also offers its content training course to the non-profit sector, helping their marketing personnel to tell their organisation's story.

Charities, social enterprises and community groups have powerful stories to tell about the difference they can make to people's lives.

Being able to tell that story through marketing content will help these organisations to attract the interest of the public and ultimately to gain financial support, through donations or purchases.

The content creation skills that participants learn will also give them the opportunity to market their organisation on free marketing platforms, allowing them to direct their resources where it matters – to the service users.

Transcription

WriteWords offers transcription services that convert your sound file into a written transcript. We have a fast turnaround time and can complete files to tight deadlines if they are urgent. Our transcription service aims to give you a written record of what was said during a meeting or an interview, so you can use the transcripts as evidence for your research.

We offer our transcription services to students who complete audio interviews with one or more participants as part of an undergraduate or postgraduate thesis. We also transcribe for companies who are doing market research, focus groups or HR interviews.

We offer different levels of transcription according to your needs, such as:

  • Full Verbatim – we write your words exactly as they are said, including ums, ahs, crutch words and unfinished words. This is a good option for researchers who need total accuracy, as it will help them avoid ambiguity and bias.
  • Clean Verbatim – we write every word that’s said, but we leave out ums, ahs, crutch words and unfinished words, which makes the document easier to read.
  • Edited Verbatim. Every word is written, but crutch words and hesitations are left out and the sentences are also edited so they are more grammatically correct.
  • Summarised Content: In these documents, we capture the essence of what was said and all secondary information is left out.
