Write to Work applications are LIVE!
Write to Work is a 12-week skills development course with creativity at its heart. At WoW we know that writing is fundamental to effective communication and in an ever-changing employment landscape that makes writing the number one skill. The course supports learners to explore an exciting range of writing skills, developing their confidence to get the job they want and explore further education or vocational training.
Have you ever wondered how to write for social media or create a successful blog? What about learning to write for the gaming industry? Or becoming a freelance copywriter? Write to Work is not just your regular writing course: it gives learners the chance to explore a host of writing practices and learn first-hand from successful writers doing those jobs.
Write to Work also offers one to one mentoring with industry professionals and published writers, who will work with you to create writing that will be featured in a printed anthology at the end of the course. Your published work will be available to buy at local bookshops such as News from Nowhere, Waterstones in Liverpool One as well as online.
Write to Work will begin on Tuesday 13th July 2021 and will be delivered entirely online.
