Workshop Description: Have you ever wanted to publish an article in the Journal, but didn’t know where to start? What about putting out engaging and informative writing online for a blog or website? If you’re ready to share your passion for the craft through your writing, whether that is demonstrating a project or sharing a story, this is a workshop just for you.
Together, we’ll explore the essentials of writing compelling, clear, and informative content with considerations to audience, appropriate length, and complete yet concise instruction. Also, we’ll discuss advice on photographing images to accompany your project and much more. All experience levels welcome and nothing required for the class other than a notepad and an open mind. That said, if you have any articles you’ve been working on, bring them with you! This will be a great opportunity to collaborate with others, get some feedback, and refine your writing… and maybe even walkway with something ready to publish! This class will be taught by Michael Magnus, who has been writing and publishing leathercraft content for nearly 15 years. Most notably, Magnus published 36 issues of Magnus’ Marketing Minute, but has also written numerous articles for the Leather Crafter’s Journal, Martha Stewart, The Art of Manliness, Elktracks Studio, Tandy Leather, and many others.

Materials to bring: Notetaking materials and an open mind.
