Fighting the blank page and learning to write
Writing is a complex process, be it writing a novel, poetry, an essay or even a diary. I write since my 8 years and I have since developed a writing program (via mediation and automatic writing) which allowed me to write essays on art and write many short stories, including some have been published in school newspapers. This course is intended for all interested and aims to choose a different angle to solve white page syndrome. Together we can learn what are the best tools for you to express your creativity.

Creative Writing / Story Telling Workshop for Children.
I specialise in running fun and engaging creative writing lessons for children. These lessons are to spark children's Imagination and improve confidence in their writing, spelling and Grammar. I have a background in Drama education and therefore my teaching style is practical and interactive. In this creative writing workshop, we will create characters, journey to different lands and imagine ourselves in all different scenarios. I find that through these creative writing sessions, children feel less worried about making mistakes in their writing because we imagine the stories together before putting pen to paper. By the time they put pent to paper there is less of a barrier, our imagination has been flowing and worries of making mistakes have gone out the window.

The Modern Style of Professional Writing. Learn how to apply the latest protocols of writing in business.
When writing a text, most people express differently than how they speak in actual one-to-one conversations. They become more formal and impressive in their speech. In this 12 unit course (each unit consisting of two 1-hour lessons), I will teach you how to write in a free, modern style and avoid traditional ways of expressing your thoughts both in personal text messages, professional emails, letters and more. It's time to make a smooth transition from an old to a new, modern way of writing away from nominalizations and high vocabulary contents. We will avoid decorative and figurative speech because those are used in poetry and artistic themes. In business, we deal with facts and figures. Our purpose is to express, not necessarily to impress! There is a common assumption, that those who write longer and impressive words make readers believe them. They make attempts of persuading others in taking decisions to what they propose. The reailty is that we can still persuade others by being genuine and concise in our words without making 'uturns'. People will believe us when we reflect the same personality and create the same identity touch of ourselves both when communicating to them face to face or through texts. Your readers should not feel that you're a different person than how you're perceived in real life. So the free, modern style of writing recommends that we keep the same style both in oral or written speech. This is my personal struggle with professionals who are engaged in business communication. They do not like the idea of this revolutionary approach. Most managers who read reports, business letters, proposals and mainly emails prefer not to read overloaded texts but concise ones. No surprise that most managers call workers to one-to-one meetings after reading heavy, boring, unclear and nominalized emails. I'll give an practical example soon. Most formal writers in companies prefer to use nominalization instead of consiceness. eg. "As per the discussion we had yesterday" (nominalized) "As we discussed yesterday" (concise) Other common mistakes are when people use passive voice sentences in emails than active ones. eg. "The project was approved by the top management" (passive) "The top management approved the project" (active) I encourage writers to stick to one writing style. People are the same when speaking and writing. They should not be perceived differently by readers when expressing their thougths in a written format. In this technical skill course, I introduce the latest protocols of modern style of writing in business without making attempts of changing your style as a learne, because your style should convey feelings and thoughts about your personality in communication. You will also learn how to apply: - The KISS formula - The ABC formula - Netiquette Most importantly, upon the completion of this 12 unit course, you will learn how to produce a business piece (letters, emails, memos..) using the Four-point Plan Model. The course has a blended learning nature. It means I will ask you to complete small, light assignments to apply the knoweldge area covered. Most academics, scholars and professional experts recommend the modern style of writing away from vague and out-of-date written approaches. I look forward to teaching you how to master this skill. Stay safe! Matthias
