Professional writers produce copy for a variety of media: They write top-of-the-line stories for local, national, and global newspapers; features for national, regional, and special-interest magazines; copy for corporate publications, such as newsletters, house magazines, company brochures, and annual reports; PR, such as press releases and press briefings; copy for direct-mail campaigns and advertising; promotional materials for sales and, in the nonprofit sector, fundraising campaigns; and copy for nonprint media such as radio, TV, and multimedia, including the Internet. This writer's workshop is open to beginners as well as those with various kinds of writing experience. Students experiment with writing in different styles and share their writing for class discussion. They come away from the workshop with a range of practical writing skills that can be readily applied in different kinds of media.
