Writing workshops: Geneva, May 12 and June 23

I am giving writing and editing workshops in Geneva on May 12 and June 23, designed for people in international organizations who write for policymakers and the wider public.

I have led three workshops in Geneva in the past six months, which have been attended by staff from a wide range of agencies, including UNHCR, ILO, WHO, Africa Progress Panel, Kofi Annan Foundation, Interpeace, IEC, Medair, HD Centre, ICVA, WTO and World Economic Forum.

The workshop includes hands-on exercises and focuses on:
– how to plan, structure, write clearly and revise;
– framing arguments; avoiding jargon; analysing the politics of language;
– writing press releases, opinion articles, speeches, reports, blogs and web pages.

Each workshop is tailored to the needs of its participants, which I assess in advance using a questionnaire and analysis of writing samples.

WHEN: 9:00–17:15, May 12 and June 23
WHERE: Hotel Eden, 135 rue de Lausanne, 1202 Geneva
COST: 350 EUR (includes coffee breaks and sandwich lunch)
