A few months ago, I was invited to participate in a Business Writer’s Workshop in the Denver, CO area on Meetup.com. I thought it was a fabulous idea to gather entrepreneurs and individuals needing to create content for their websites, blogs, educational or informational downloads for clients, and fun custom projects.
Not only do those who write their own business or project content get advice from professional writers, editors, and publishers, but they share what they look for on other business or hobby websites in different industries, which provides valuable research for the writing professionals.
The host of the group is a real estate agent, Victoria Fitch, who has been in the Denver area her whole life. Conversation in her industry centers around real estate and how to optimize landing pages or create an informative blog article for all the different localities in the Denver area. I am now co-hosting the group and share digital content writing and editing tips that may be helpful for everyone, whether you are writing on your own because you enjoy it or simply have budget constraints.
Other writers in the group work in very different areas of the industry and share experiences in business such as developing competitive rates, marketing their skills, learning about other areas of interest, and finding time to maintain our own content as we write and edit for others. All are open to suggestions on new processes to improve and expand business. We all have unique perspectives!
Victoria originally described her new meetup as “an opportunity for local professionals to meet bi-monthly and share their business writing.” Members discuss their current projects, such as building a website, starting a blog, or publishing a book, to share and receive support from a collaborative environment. We invite speakers to present information on business writing and related resources.
Once you’ve visited the meetup site, you can request to join our Business Writer’s Workshop Facebook Group for more information and additional resources.
If this sounds like a great opportunity to you, please go to the meetup site to let us know
you’d like to attend.
