Writing for Success!

Monday, October 14, 2013  
9:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Regardless of how technology has impacted our daily lives, the written word is still critical to communications success. Whether writing grant proposals, annual appeals or press releases, communicating with volunteers or board members, what you write and how you write it can make a world of difference in the responses you receive.

This workshop promises to be interactive and fun. You will be participating in writing exercises, group "grammar" games and communication scenarios. The day will move quickly and you will leave with refined skills in how to write clear, compelling and professional materials. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop with WORD software but, if that is not available, just bring a pencil so you can complete the exercises!

The speaker for this new workshop will be one of the Foundation Center’s long-time presenters, Rosemary Martinelli, Principal, Martinelli & Associates Consultants, providing public relations, corporate citizenship and philanthropic counsel to businesses and nonprofits. In addition, she has served as the corporate spokesperson and communications executive for various businesses, corporations and nonprofits in our region. Rosemary also teaches business writing at the college level, so she will be bringing her expertise and classroom exercises to this workshop.

The fee to attend this program is $30 per person, which includes a light continental breakfast, and can be paid at the door with cash or checks made payable to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Space is limited and registration is required by calling the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh - Foundation Center at 412-622-6277.
