“Adding value: It’s about your audience”

Where can you find me?

I blog every day about writing, business, and other issues. Subscribe to the blog or follow me on Twitter or Facebook to catch the latest posts.

And if you want to become a better writer, the fastest way to do that is to write every day—even if all you have is 15 minutes. Join the Bennett Ink 90-Day Writing Challenge and find out for yourself. This quarter’s challenge starts Saturday April 1st, but you can enroll until April 5th. Check the link for more details.

I also teach. I’ll be offering my 12-week Writing Unbound course again soon. And I have upcoming webinars on speechwriting, and editing your own work. I’ll be sure to send you information on future classes.
