AAEA, the Agricultural Communicators Network held a Midwest Regional Workshop at CHS headquarters in Inver Grove Heights, MN. The workshop was very well attended with an estimated 60 people filling the room to learn tips and techniques for improving their professional skills.
I was only able to attend the first session, “A Guide to More Effective Writing: Finding Your Voice.” The presenter was Stephen Wilbers. Wilbers not only talked about writing improvement but also had us doing exercises like proofreading examples on his handouts. I have pledged to only single space after a period from now on.
