Who are textworkshops for?

Our unique TextWorkshop course brings together expertise from the worlds of museums and journalism to give you a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of good writing – and how to apply them to great text-writing.

From the web to twitter, it’s never been more important to get your digital text-writing up to scratch. If you write for on-screen interactives or websites, and want to make sure your text is pixel-perfect, Digital TextWorkshop is for you. Join us to learn the tips and tricks of effective digital communication, and find out why and how you should tweet.
