Andrew Johnston  |  Writing workshops

My core workshops cover a wide range of writing situations, from reports to press releases to and social media. They include hands-on editing practice, and will help you to:

  • identify audiences, goals and reading contexts
  • plan and structure documents logically
  • build clear, concise paragraphs and sentences
  • choose the most appropriate words and identify words to omit
  • avoid, explain or replace jargon and buzzwords
  • revise drafts thoroughly.

My one-day advanced workshops focus on group analysis of the six participants' texts.

My two-day workshops combine my core workshop material with a choice of  90-minute modules from a wide range of topics:

• Scientific/research writing

• Concept notes

• Opinion articles (opeds)

• Social media

• Executive summaries

• Effective email

• Managing colleagues’ writing

• Analysing 2 writing samples

   (by participants if possible)

• Writing blogs

• Policy briefs

• Presentations

• Critical thinking

• Using data to tell a story
