The Next Best Thing to a Full-Time Writing Coach
Without spending a fortune, you can provide employees with consistent and meaningful professional development.
Hiring me is like having your own in-house writing center.
Hi, I’m Andy Brown. I can help your employees improve their writing skills. Along with experience as a professional writer-for-hire, I bring a pedagogical approach drawn from my years as a writing tutor and classroom instructor. My services include tailored writing workshops for groups and one-on-one coaching.
Training that’s tailored to your people
Writing workshops run between 45 minutes and 2 hours. They focus on writing fundamentals, with an emphasis on practical in-context applications. Most importantly, they’re interactive. The exercises are designed to engage participants in writing, reflection and discussion, with the purpose of introducing and reinforcing key lessons. Workshops are customized to meet the needs of each client.
Examples of workshops conducted by Methodical Writing in the past include:
- Business Writing Essentials
- Conducting Interviews + Writing
- Exercises to Increase Writing Stamina
- Writing with Clarity: Strategies, Skills, Practice
- Proofreading: Strategies, Skills, Practice
- Writing for Event Promotion
- Writing for Publication
- Copywriting for Websites
- Writing to Evoke the Senses
- Writing “Performance Assessments”
- Writing “Self-Assessments for Performance Reviews”
- And more
Personal attention that’s worth every penny
One-on-one coaching services are typically offered in half-hour blocks. Participation is voluntary, and participants sign up for as many blocks as they need. They often come with specific assignments or projects with which they desire help.
Alternatively, they come for guidance on how to address specific gaps in their skill sets. In both cases, these sessions allow me to provide individual feedback and personalized interventions. Participants may also come in small teams, if they prefer.
How Much Does It Cost?
A flat fee. No surprises.
I charge a flat fee for each daily, on-site engagement. The fee is all-inclusive and covers my time, travel and training materials. Once you reserve a date, I’ll structure the day according to your wishes (tailored workshops, one-on-one coaching or a mix of both).
Book multiple sessions. Save $$.
Rates are discounted according to the number of contracted daily engagements. Contact me for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many employees can attend each workshop?
Each workshop accommodates a maximum 24 participants. I can always run the same workshop multiple times in a day if you want.
Do you offer remote coaching?
Yes, I offer remote one-on-one coaching, but only for clients who book me for regular on-site engagements. I charge a flat, monthly fee for a pre-set number of coaching hours.
Can I determine the workshop topics?
Absolutely. I’ll work with you to develop workshops that address your organization’s challenges.
Coaching is great, but what if I want to hire you as a writer?
Sometimes it’s more cost-effective to outsource routine writing assignments. If you need a writer and not a coach, please check out my unlimited copywriting service.
