I will be teaching “Writing for the Web” at Clark College Corporate and Continuing Education in Vancouver, Washington, Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 3 – July 8, 2013. The class will be at the West Coast Bank Building in downtown Vancouver, Washington, just a few minutes from downtown Portland, Oregon.
Writing on the web is now a daily habit for many around the world, sharing our thoughts, stories, and expertise via social media and blogging. We all do it. Isn’t it time you learned how to do it better?
The writing class is focused on web publishing and self-publishing on everything from blogs to Facebook and Twitter. Students will create a WordPress.com practice site and learn about content development, strategies, structure, and organization, understanding the power of self-publishing and preserving the written word.
Multimedia will not be ignored. We will cover how to create and include images, video, and podcasting, the art of regularly scheduled audio and video updates and shows.
Web writing techniques and styles will be covered including storytelling, writing for search engines, building an online community, comments and interactivity, linking, copyright, guest blogging, citizen journalism, and how to edit, research, and develop an article on a website.
We will be working on WordPress, so expect to learn more about content publishing and management on WordPress. If you want to dive even deeper into WordPress, this course is an ideal accompaniment to my classes and workshops on WordPress.
This is a must-take course for anyone working with the web and social media. It is also recommended for personal bloggers, crafters, artists, authors, family historians, and small business owners.
You may register online through their site, Clark College Corporate and Continuing Education, or by phone, 360-992-2939, or in person at the new Continuing Education offices in the West Coast Bank Building.
You will find more information on this course and other courses I teach such as WordPress college degree courses and continuing education courses, and family history blogging in Classes and Workshops.
These classes tend to fill up fast. I look forward to seeing you there and helping you learn more about having your say on the web.
