Location Online

In this one-day online copywriting workout, Arvon brings together two writing legends from the commercial writing world.

John Simmons and Will Awdry have – through books, workshops, their own hands-on experience – set the standard for writing that is engaging, playful and effective. Their aim with this workout is to get you feeling confident in your writing, fitter to take on any challenges and equipped with new insights to take your writing to a higher level.

In the session, John and Will share notes, debate opinions and show examples of inspirational thinking and writing, complete with critiques, results and explanation. Contributions and opinions will be warmly encouraged via the ‘Chat’ forum. There will be the odd, light-hearted invitation to respond to rapid, but risk-free, challenges. Wrong answers will not exist.

Absorbing, entertaining and informative, this is a memorable day that dishes up countless useful take-outs to tuck into your writing – whatever your metier, mojo or medium.
