“It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.” – Ernest Hemingway
Come channel your inner Hemingway—or the modern-day, business-oriented version of him!--with BosCon’s Writing Workshop.
Whether you are an early career marketer looking to beef up your writing skills, an established writer who needs a refresher, or a BosCon community member with strong opinions on the appropriate use of exclamation points in business communication and the role of the serial comma, this event is for you.
The two-hour, hands-on workshop will provide specific, pragmatic advice for business writing—from punctuation and passive voice, to AP Style rules, word choice and structure.
About your workshop guide:
