Ewriterscoach Group and Corporate Workshops 

Our Presenters come to you!  All coursework is customizable.

Workshop A – Dynamic Intelligence (Emotional Intelligence with a twist)

Marni Freedman lmft will guide your group through course material that will promote communication and cooperation between staff and enhance connection with potential customers.

This workshop will help participants to better understand and identify their own behavior, emotions and motivations and in turn to better understand others.  An understanding of emotional intelligence leads to greater self-awareness and greater self-management, which ultimately leads to a more harmonious and positive workplace.    Participants who follow the guidelines of Dynamic Intelligence will feel empowered to connect more to customer needs and to take on challenges with enthusiasm and clarity.   Personal insight leads to better business.

Frequently Asked Questions
handsraised

1) Is it okay if I am a beginning writer?
Yes. We are open to all levels and work well with beginners (unless class is specifically noted as “Advanced”).

2) Will I be able to read my material during class?
For a read and critique: Yes, you will be reading your material every other week. The week you do not read you will be critiquing/supporting your fellow writers.
For a workshop: While each class is structured differently, there is usually a portion of time allocated to read and critique. If you would like to have a long portion of your work read, consider hiring a coach for an assessment or joining one of the online read and critique classes.

3) What do you focus on?
We focus on kicking your craft up a notch. We will help you to better understand and execute the principles of structure, plot, character, dialogue, point of view, description and voice.

4) What Genres are allowed in Read and Critique?
Novels, Screenplays, plays, non-fiction, memoir, graphic novels, blogs and short stories.

5) Who are the instructors?
Most classes are taught by Marni Freedman or Carlos de los Rios. They have been successfully coaching and training writers for over a decade. We have guest teachers that offer specialty classes as well. Our instructors are professionals with real world experience. CLICK HERE to learn more about the background and approach of each instructor.

6) How does an online class work?
You will be given easy-to-follow instructions. The class will look like a group Skype meeting where you can see everyone in the class. For read and critique the time will be divided equally among the readers.

7) How is a workshop different from a read and critique group?
Read and critique is focused on reading your material and making it better. You will learn practical hands on tips and tools tailored to your needs. Workshops are designed to cover the specific information advertised. Information is provided via lecturing, group discussions and if requested, critiqued homework.

8) Am I signing a contract, can I quit at any time?
No contracts, no membership fees, pay as you go.

9) What if I need more personalized attention?
We offer individual sessions at a fairly low cost to help those that need a more specialized approach. CLICK HERE to read more about our individual coaching sessions.

10) How do I know that my ideas are safe and that no one will stealing my ideas?
In over 20+ years of doing this work, that is a common question but overall not a realistic fear, as we have never seen it happen. Writers are usually far too focused on bringing their own ideas to life. However, to help those that feel uncomfortable, the group can decide on signing non-disclosure statements to protect confidentiality. You can also register your work at the Writer’s Guild of America and/or the U.S. Copyright office for further protection.
