How to find your voice on social media

Back to the workshops overview

If the thought of posting anything on social media leaves you quaking at your keyboard, you’ve come to the right place. We can help you navigate the weird online world of memes, hashtags and OMG moments to arrive safely at a place where normal language, combined with cracking content, wins the day.

Don’t expect a detailed analysis of metrics and metadata, though. This isn’t about using technical tricks, or setting up a social media account from scratch. It’s about using good old-fashioned writing techniques to build your profile and get your words noticed.
