WoW – Workshop on Workshops
Why do some workshops leave you excited about writing, while others cripple you with a migraine? What can you do as a leader to inspire others with your passion? There is no app that magically transforms writers into dynamic speakers, but there are “tricks of the trade.”
In this session we will examine “best practices,” teaching strategies based on brain research that inspire and motivate learners, and deepen understanding. We will focus on three areas:
- Structuring information
- Use of graphic organizers
- Use of audio-visuals
There will be lots of discussion about interactive activities, and we will be “learning by doing.” If you have any ideas for a workshop you’d like to develop, bring them along. Also, please, bring paper, pens and pencil crayons. We will be tapping our imagination and creativity to create exciting learning events for writers.

I belong to a wonderful writing chapter (VIC-RWA) that has greatly enriched my life as a writer. I want to give back.
Quite possibly. Show me a writer who isn’t. But it’s fun pulling my ideas together. More about that another day.
Your turn. I’ve never given a workshop to writers before. Any horror stories?
