Q: Where does this video come from?

A: Our online videos are recorded at our NYC campus, right across from Zaro’s. We handpick the best of our classes + workshops and fresh squeeze them to produce an online offering for students who prefer to learn on their own time, who live far from a GA campus, or who just love pressing rewind.

A: All of our live streams are labeled according to New York time (EST/EDT) in accordance with a panel of artisan watchmakers.


Q: I live on the other side of the globe and won't be awake when the live stream airs. What can I do?

What you'll learn in this more writing class:

Writing for an online audience is completely different to writing for an English exam. In fact, the most effective online copy would probably make your English teacher faint.

People consume content differently online than they do when reading books or other long-form content.

The good news is you don’t have to be a professional writer or have a degree in wordsmithing (that’s a technical term, honest) to write compelling copy.

To write effectively for the web you need to make your message clear.

You need to format your content so it’s easy to consume.

You need to inspire action to turn casual browsers into engaged subscribers.

Whether you’re a marketer, blogger or startup founder, this workshop will help you write better, clearer and more compelling content that gets results.

Takeaways

In this practical workshop you’ll learn:

  • How to make your message concise and clear
  • The difference between content writing and copy writing
  • How to communicate more by writing less
  • How to drive engagement and sales with your words
  • Free tools and resources to improve productivity and streamline your writing process Whether you’re a marketer, blogger or startup founder, this workshop will help you write better, clearer and more compelling content that gets results.

Preparation

    • This workshop will be completely live and online. In preparation, please download Zoom.

      NOTE: this class will not be recorded, however, slides will be sent within 7 days following the session.


    Remote Learning

    This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
