Writing and Blogging Workshops

Would you like to learn more about either blogging or writing for magazines and newspapers?

I’ve been facilitating workshops for over 10 years, and I love helping writers and bloggers to get their words published in print or online.

If you live in Western Australia you might like to join one of the fun workshops I facilitate in Bunbury, or join me online.

Workshops I offer

  • How to set up a blog on WordPress
  • Why you need a blog and what it can do for you or your business
  • How to write great headlines
  • How to write blog posts that rock
  • Drive more traffic to your blog
  • How to get published and write for magazines and newspapers
  • What you need to know about Headlines, Editing, and Research for Freelance Writing and Blogging
  • How to write a Press Release with Zing!
  • Create a network of social connections : Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram.

Place:  Lyndendale Gallery, 828 Crooked Brook Road, Dardanup.6236.  Booking Phone: 9728 3038   Booking Email

Otherwise  consider hiring me for a venue elsewhere in Australia? Have suitcase, will travel!

You could ‘go it alone’ and study an online course – well you’re not really alone, because I’m at the end of an email, or Facebook or Twitter, or even hanging off the end of an old fashioned phone to support you.

I have a list of testimonials and references  which you can find here: Testimonials

And recently Camille Shirley posted a review of a recent workshop at The Lyndendale Gallery on her blog: Lesson of the Week.

workshops with Jo Castro
Age is just a number. My workshops attract people between the ages of 16 and 80. Everybody comes with a keen interest in either writing or blogging. They can look very serious and studious sometimes, can’t they! Such good students 🙂 But actually we laugh – a lot!
