Supercharge Your Writing
Take your writing to a higher level
Find new ways of saying old things. Replace well-worn clichés with original thinking. And use creative writing techniques to make even the dullest subjects engaging.
The ability to write well rarely comes easily. The best writers admit to fine-tuning several drafts before achieving the right results. But when it works, great writing makes the target audience think, feel or do exactly what the author wanted them to think feel or do.
Supercharge your writing uses a mix of creative exercises, real examples and professional techniques to show good writers how to become great ones.

What delegates say about Supercharge Your Writing for PR Professionals:
I found reflecting on my writing very helpful, Iâ€™ll also take away some valuable techniques to hopefully strengthen my writing. I like that it was interactive, we were made to think, act, and write ourselves which kept the session engaging.
Lorraine is a very good trainer, with an engaging and supportive style. Collaboration was fun. The exercises were game-like but also educative.
It made me think about how to structure content more effectively and write in a more engaging but concise way. Mixture of fun and written exercises which keeps you engaged.
Very useful in terms of learning what language to use depending on different scenarios. Also getting out of the PR bubble and seeing our style of writing from a different point of view. Not boring - entertaining and useful. It wasnâ€™t just listening but actually working in pairs and doing practical things.
Lorraine was very engaging. The flow and content of the course was wonderful. Really great teacher!
I found the session extremely helpful for both answering the questions I had initially, and identifying the areas for future development. The exercises were particularly helpful for illustrating theproblems and their solutions.
It was extremely useful. I think Lorraine really got to grips in helping us understand why we write things. By helping us through exercises to improve clarity, succinctness, and impartialness, I now understand ways to make my writing better.
