I have just finished the ‘Effective Writing & Drafting Skills’ workshop held over the last 2 mornings. I just wanted to let you know that I thought it was a really useful session (I think one of the most helpful workshops I have been to). It was very practical which meant that we had a chance to do plenty of short exercises to put into practice some of the skills Sue Tomat was showing us. A lot of the skills Sue showed us were things that I am often told to do and know I am supposed to use, but have not necessarily known how to implement. I also thought that the structure (2 half days) was good because we were fresh for the whole time (rather than getting weary by the end of one long day) and it was also easier to manage getting away from the work demands for a half day than a whole day.
