Writing Together: Narrative Techniques 

Schedule: 4-10 weekly 90 minute sessions for 12-15 people 

Workshop Description: In our signature program, learn the fundamentals and compelling power of narrative techniques for your writing. After fun, generative writing activities, a GrubStreet instructor will coach your team through an interactive workshop process with revision strategies. By the end of the class, your team should have new tools for efficient, engaging, and persuasive communication, as well as collaboration and feedback. No previous creative writing experience is necessary – but your group is encouraged to bring in writing samples from their work! 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will gain a strong understanding of foundational writing strategies and how they can dramatically improve workplace communication. This includes how to build a compelling story; how to keep your audience’s attention; how to identify the stakes and better persuade your reader; and how to be both creative and efficient in your process. 
  • Skills learned here can be transferred to any field: science and technology, consulting, business, research, marketing, HR communication, and more. 
  • In addition to improving their own writing, participants will engage in facilitated workshops, gaining tools to help solicit and give feedback, helping your team sharpen a practice of reviewing each other's writing and improving communication through collaboration. 
  • Through collaborative revision, participants will have an opportunity to apply the writing strategies they’ve learned–with a piece of writing relevant to their workplace.

Your Team's Story: Building Collaboration Through Writing

Schedule: 4-10 weekly 90 minute sessions for 12-15 people 

Workshop Description: Every team communicates differently–but there are aspects of writing that can help any organization become more creative, efficient, and effective.

Your team will work closely with an instructor to create writing, communication, and workshop strategies that work for YOUR team. In the first class, teams will lay out goals for the course and identify areas in their writing that could use improvement. In subsequent classes, the instructor will guide participants through narrative-focused writing and revision activities meant to foster productive conversation, team-building, and attainment of their goals. By the end of the course, the team will create unique goals and criteria for the specific kind of writing that is most important to the day-to-day function of their work environment. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will gain a strong understanding of foundational narrative strategies and how to apply them to their own workplace’s needs and demands. 
  • Participants will engage in facilitated writing workshops, developing skills to be more creative and effective in their individual and team-based communications.
  • Participants will work together to establish goals and create community norms around writing and feedback, fostering the kinds of conversations that lead to team-building, as well as improved writing ability and confidence.
