Take a break from coronavirus news and join writing guru Steve Padilla, editor of the Los Angeles Times’ showcase feature Column One, for a workshop with writing tips you’ll use forever.
The workshop, to be held this Saturday over Zoom, is sponsored by the California Chicano News Media Association, which has been fostering the careers of Latino journalists for 48 years. The session is open to all and free, though donations to support CCNMA’s mission are encouraged. Steve will offer up sentence-level, straight-to-the-point tips you can start using immediately.
As Steve often points out, these tips are not designed for beginners or bad writers. They are the tricks he uses every day, and they work for long-term narratives as well a quick dailies for the web. His presentation focuses on journalism, but the techniques and principles would be of use to anyone who works with words, from student to long-time professional. If you find his tweets on writing technique useful—follow him at @StevePadilla2—you’ll like his lectures even more.
The workshop will be held Saturday, April 25, at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.
