MAYA MEETINGS Workshops presents
BRILLIANT EVERYDAY WRITING SKILLS
Is writing anything from a business document to a landlord complaint stressful?
Do you feel blocked when it comes to getting the words from your head onto the screen?
Do you wish when you write that your writing voice could sound like you, but then find you produce words that aren’t you?
Do you hate the way you write and believe your writing self isn’t ‘good enough’?
Have you arrived in London with perfect English, but it’s your second language and you’re struggling with non academic English?
Is much of your day taken up with the frustration of words because most of your work is by email or involves writing documents?
Are you frustrated because after all this no one reads the emails or documents properly anyway?
If you answered yes to one or more or all of the above, this intensive one day course promises to remove the headache of writing. Places are limited to guarantee personal attention.
