Writing Workshops for Professionals are coming to Las Vegas in June, 2020

Good writers get ahead. Spend a day developing your skills at a hands-on workshop with Methodical Writing.

Hi! I’m Andy Brown, a full-time freelance writer and writing coach.

In 2015, I started a Meetup Group for anyone who wanted to practice writing in a welcoming environment. That turned into steady work as a trainer for numerous organizations.

I love freelance writing, but I started the Meetup Group because I missed teaching. Earlier in my career, I worked in university writing centers and taught composition to college students.

Now I get to write and teach — the best of both worlds.

I’m a practicing writer, so I know the questions and struggles you face. My workshops address your writing challenges through practical, hands-on exercises.

What do we cover in Methodical Writing workshops?

  • We talk about what makes writing ‘effective.’
  • We practice writing for different audiences and with different purposes in mind.
  • We review language and grammar concepts and how they influence our writing.
  • We practice writing sentences that are easy to comprehend.
  • We learn to manipulate syntax for effect.
  • We discuss and practice what it means to be good editors.
  • We learn to condense wordy sentences and paragraphs.
  • We study the difference between reporting, narrating and other modes of communication.
  • We explore figures of speech and other powerful rhetorical devices.
  • We dissect elements of the writing process and learn to use them for any writing task.
  • And much more.
