Most nonprofit communicators consider themselves to be good writers.

But what really sets apart the great writers in the nonprofit world is a mastery of seven distinct types of copywriting.

Odds are you are great at a few of the seven styles, but you could use some polishing on the others.

During this workshop, we’ll review today’s best practices for seven kinds of nonprofit writing:

  1. Microcontent
  2. Storytelling
  3. Supporter-Centered Copywriting
  4. News Writing
  5. Conversion Copywriting
  6. Lifestyle Writing
  7. Thought Leadership

You will also work in small groups twice to practice how to improve and repurpose real-world nonprofit copy into a different writing style, helping you gain a better understanding of the differences between the styles and which styles to use in what context.

We’ll Cover:

  • The three levels of editing and why each is important

  • Each style of writing and how best to use them

  • Real-world examples of each style

  • Small group time to edit and repurpose content from real nonprofits during our breakout sessions

“The breakout rooms and a chance to dig in and do the work was my favorite part. We were a little shy to start with but warmed up quickly.” – O.B.
