Writing and Red Ink

March 5, 2018 by

We church communicators do a lot of stuff, don’t we? And we’re expected to be experts on all of it: web design, social media strategy, email marketing, and more. One critical skill is a part of everything we do: Writing.

This month on Courageous Storytellers, we have all sorts of resources to help you level-up on your word-nerdiness. Whether you’re already a terrific writer or your eighth grade English teacher is still chasing you with her red pen, we hope this month’s goodies will help build your skills and your confidence.

Here’s what we have for our Courageous Storytellers this month:

  1. Practical writing tips from a published author and professional editor.
  2. A guide for writing better headlines.
  3. Must-have tips for writing for the web and some web copy to get you started.
  4. A DIY checklist of common mistakes.
  5. 10 copywriting pet peeves.
  6. A ready-to-customize presentation to help get style-guide buy-in from your colleagues.
  7. A how-to guide for building a writing and editing team, including how to vet your volunteers.
  8. A list of 33 books and blogs that’ll help you improve your writing.
  9. A list of pre-Easter copy tune-ups to make.
  10. Tips for writing better church announcements.
  11. A free copy of Copy Matters.
