Have you ever dreamed of seeing your byline in a magazine or an online publication, perhaps?
For many aspiring writers, that is the ultimate goal. For the more established writers, seeing their names in print doesn’t get old. There’s a natural high in seeing your byline and immortalizing your words in print.
Writer’s Block Philippines will help you get started by arming you with the necessary tools you need to create feature pieces fit for print. The organization will have another run of one of its bestselling workshops, “Feature Writing 101”, on March 21 (Saturday), 1pm-6pm in Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
Whether you’re an aspiring writer, freelancer, someone who works in communications, or someone who simply wants to write better, this serves as a chance to hone your writing techniques and uncover new ones.
Founders Ana P. Santos and Nikka Sarthou-Lainez have been facilitating writing workshops since 2010, and have been helping young writers jumpstart their freelance writing careers.
“It has always been our advocacy to support writers who want to develop their craft ever since we started Writer’s Block Philippines five years ago,” shared Santos, an independent journalist and foreign correspondent who is also the 2014 Persephone Miel fellow by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
“We will discuss the building blocks of feature pieces and even share writing hacks to guide the participants in creating effective feature articles. Aside from the usual lectures, participants will have the opportunity to polish their skills through a writing exercise,” mentioned Sarthou-Lainez, a contributing editor for an in-flight magazine.
Interested participants need not have professional writing experience to join the workshop; just an open mind and a story idea. Freelance writers who want to write for a living, bloggers, and business communicators who look at writing as a hobby, should attend this event.
Registration is now open and there are only limited slots available! For inquiries and reservations, email email@example.com or contact 0917.397.9927. Visit www.writersblockphilippines.com for more details.
