Blogging is a powerful way to share what you know. On Wednesday, November 30th at the Arlington Central Library, we’ll train you to write blog posts that effectively and persuasively share your ideas with the world.

Our last blogging session was a huge success! We’d love to have you at the upcoming one in Arlington. Photo by Kelli Raboy.

The session is from 6:30-8:30, on the second floor of the library (1015 North Quincy Street). The goal is to help you expand your writing skills by teaching you what works and what doesn’t in blogging! Here’s some of what we’ll cover:

  • Three fundamentals that any blog post should have
  • How to pick a topic and write an introduction that will grab readers’ attention
  • The strengths and weaknesses of a sample GGWash post

We’ll also have plenty of time to answer your questions.

If you want to attend, please let us know via this form.

We plan to host more of these sessions all around the region, as we’re constantly looking to grow our community of writers— so don’t worry if you can’t make it to this one. Also, let us know if you’d like to host a session; we’d love to come to your neighborhood or group!
