I have to admit. Writing never came easy for me, especially when I find myself not "in the mood" for it. But this hasn't stopped me from dreaming. So when Writer's Block Philippines offered version 3.0 of their Feature Writing 101 workshop, I just knew this could provide me with the drive I need to finally become a more serious wordsmith.
|Writer's Block Philippines' Feature Writing 101 (version 3.0)|
Presented by the gorgeous ladies of Writer's Block Philippines (Ana Santos, Nikka Sarthou and Niňa Terol-Zialcita), their Feature Writing 101 workshops aims to improve your writing style and how to overcome the usual obstacles faced by writers.
Who knew there was more to a great Feature article than witty phrases and grammatically correct sentences? In this workshop, you get to learn the basics -- from creating an engaging lead to conducting proper research for your piece to developing interesting angles, among other things.
Participants were always encouraged to join in the discussions and ask questions, something that I really loved since I'm such an inquisitive individual.
This being a workshop, the latter part is reserved for starting your own written masterpieces and applying the skills learned during the sessions. Critiques to follow.
I left the workshop with a full mind and determination to jumpstart my dream of having my work published. Wish me luck! J
