Dayla Massachi - Writing for Community Success
Let’s face it. Virtually everyone working for a social or environmental cause has to do some writing at some point.
You may be like I am, and love committing words to paper. If so, you are always on the lookout for new ways to bring your writing to life.
Or, you may never have intended to become a writer at all. You may be one of the many people who got into this field for other important reasons: an interest and passion concerning a certain issue, an urge to give something back to your community or a perspective you want to share.
Either way, the fact remains - you may produce great work or come up with outstanding ideas, but if you present those achievements or thoughts poorly they will not get very far. Effective writing engages your readers, provokes their critical thinking and compels them to take meaningful action. It also leaves them wanting more. And the better you can do that, the deeper and broader your impact will be.
