Workshop Descriptions

 

Story Sparks: Creative Writing for Kids

Calling all kids ages 9-12 who love to write!

This workshop is for you.

Which are your favourite kinds of stories? Action-packed and exciting adventures, laugh-your-head-off hilarious comedies or heart-breakingly emotional weepies? Maybe it’s all 3. But what is it that the best stories all have in common?

Great stories start with great characters, whether it’s villainous villains or heroic heroes, but where do these characters come from? Award-winning author Keith Gray will guide you through creating your very own heroes and villains. He will help you find the most descriptive words and invent the most unforgettable images while all the time building your story-telling skills so that you’ll soon be writing the best adventure-comedy-weepie too.

Date: April 29, 2018

Time: 2:30 – 5:00

Location: Türkenschanzstrasse 4/2, 1180

Copywriting: Everything you need to know to get started!

Join professional copywriter, Matt Campelli for an exciting intensive weekend workshop to learn the ins and outs of copywriting.

Copywriting has its perks. Being paid for creative work that you can do from anywhere in the world (the beach?) sounds like an appealing option, particularly if you’ve fallen out of love with your 9-5. And there’s plenty of work – if you know how and where to get it.

But (there’s always a but), you need to have the skills to deliver what paying clients want. Plus, you’ll have to learn how to position yourself to win customers in an increasingly crowded marketplace.

During this two-day copywriting workshop, you will learn:

  • The essential copywriting toolkit

  • Why stories are crucial for copywriters – and how to use them

  • How to address client pain points

  • What paying clients are looking for, and how to position yourself to win their business

Date: May 12th and 13th , 2018

Time: 2:00-5:00

Location: Türkenschanzstrasse 4/2, 1180

Fee:€120
