Hello, we’re The Writer (thewriter.com), the world’s largest language consultancy.
The world’s best (and most humble) language consultancy is running a two-day workshop on 26th and 27th March 2015. We’re looking for 20 undergraduates who love writing to come and get inspired to write for a living. And if you’re really good, we might ask you to be one of our two paid apprentices.
We’ll show you how you can make a career out of writing for business. There’ll be plenty of writing exercises, linguistic brainstorms and home-made pecha kuchas* to get your teeth into.
(*Google has the answer.)
Keep reading if:
You already write for your course
Maybe you study English, journalism or creative writing. Or maybe you just write a lot of essays.
You write in your spare time too
You might write for your student paper, a blog, or fiction. It doesn’t matter as long as you write.
You’re a bit of a word geek
You have a tendency to get excited or properly riled up by all kinds of writing. From tube ads to tubes of toothpaste, Booker Prize winners to Charlie Brooker.
Yes that’s me. What do I need to do?
Send us 300 words telling us why we should pick you (and a way for us to get in touch with you) to email@example.com. Make sure ‘Word Experience’ and your name are in your subject line. And get it to us by 1st March 2015.
Loughborough Sport has put together a bespoke Sport Presentation Training Program and would like to give all Loughborough Students the opportunity to access. The Sport Presentation training program has been written to give students the opportunity to train and learn the skills required to be an MC, a presenter, an announcer, lighting engineer, sound engineer, show caller, producer, sports presentation assistant; and most importantly – how all of these people work together to deliver a first class show.
Sport Presentation is about communicating a brand, an idea and a story. It creates unforgettable moments and highlights the theatre, excitement and anticipation around a sporting event. Sport Presentation was designed, and still exists, to enhance the experience of fans and athletes; to elevate the spectacle that is the main event. Sport Presentation is more than just the MC! Core elements of Sports presentation include – music; video boards; MCs; announcers; vision, audio and lighting; sponsor activations; special effects; sport protocols; and cultural nuance will always be the backbone of a professional package.
A Workshop has been arranged with Alan March Sport Ltd, who have been involved with Sports Presentation at some of the World’s premier sporting events: Olympic & Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games, FINA Diving World Series, Handball World Championships and Invictus Games to name a few.
The workshop will be of two parts:
- Part 1 – Introduction to Sports Presentation – Friday 6th February – Either 1.00 – 5.00pm or 6 – 10pm
- Part 2 – Practical Session (incorporating Loughborough Lightning match) – Monday 9th February – 4pm – 10pm (Some flexibility available for those with lectures until 6pm)
Volunteer Experience and Expectations:
- Once you have attended the sessions there will be a range of events available to work at. In return for the opportunity we would expect commitment to a minimum of 4 events
At present the available Loughborough Sport events are:
- Saturday 21st April Lightning Netball
- Monday 9th March Lightning Netball
