Our writing is powerful. Let’s use it to undo damage before it’s done.
The emotional and mental impact that our writing has on other people is vast and expansive. We have the power not only to sell our work, but to tell a story that changes people’s minds about themselves, about their past, and about their use of power. Maybe, as a writer, you aim to dismantle racism, or to help your followers unlearn the stigma they carry around about their bodies, their sexuality, or their gender identity. Whatever your objective, it’s all too easy to unwittingly do damage.
You want your writing, your voice, and your work to be known, right? I’m guessing being known for negatively impacting your Black and Brown readers, LGBTQ followers, and community is not what you had in mind.
It’s only through learning and unlearning that we can develop a new skill – a better skill – for identifying the harm before we hit publish. We can also learn how to identify the damage after we’ve hit publish and the right ways to race to correct it and offer repair.
Sound impossible? It’s not! It’s far from impossible. You can do it, and no matter what you’re writing about or who you’re writing to - it matters. Even if you’re writing an e-book on cutlery – it still matters.
Over six consecutive weeks, Write with Care: The Course will offer you the courageous inspiration and technical skill to help you learn how to remove the damaging biases from your copy so you can make it even more delightful and impactful.
Your brilliance deserves to be equitable and accessible.
So, what’s the secret? The most brilliant essays, sales pages, e-books and quick guides that I have ever read are brilliant because they are honest; and I’m not talking about the kind of honesty where a person just says whatever first comes to mind, uncensored.. I’m talking about the kind of honesty that we can only write on the page when we are actively invested in our personal transformation, when we are confronting our biases; biases that we all have no matter who we are, where we grew up, or what we like to eat for breakfast.
I’m talking about the kind of honesty that we can only access when we approach our writing with reflection, practice, and consider the vocabulary, phrases, and perspectives we might assume are completely harmless, but that in reality are actually disparaging and damaging to historically marginalized communities - and damaging to your voice, impact, and legacy.
Are you ready to improve your voice? To create work that is powerful and impactful? If so, read on.
