Good writing lives, and today it lives across media. Find out why one sentence packs a punch while another one fizzles — in speeches, in text, in social media and in videos — at the September IABC meeting with Dr. Kay Colley.
It all comes down to good writing and storytelling, something in great demand. Colley, a communication assistant professor at Texas Wesleyan University, where she also serves as student media director and adviser to Texas Wesleyan IABC, promises a few basic tips to strengthen these areas and get back to basics.
Colley’s professional background includes stints in public relations, magazines, and daily and weekly newspapers. She was named 2011 Teacher of the Year by the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Small Programs Interest Group.
