Writing for Digital Media

Writing for a specific audience has always been important. Today, being able to write to maximise the effectiveness of a specific digital media is equally important whether you are social media guru or a lowly noob.

Website copy, Twitter tweets, YouTube scripts, eDMs, blogs and podcasts all require different, yet complementary writing styles. Learn how to craft a business’s core messaging and how to repurpose or reinvent it for all forms of digital media.

With practical instruction, handy tips and flexible templates, you will learn how to create compelling content that is on brand, on target and on time.

Whether you want to write to communicate, inform, engage or sell in the digital world, Bridge’s new ‘Writing for Digital Media’ workshop is for you.

The BBC Media workshop will be running over the next three terms and cover the following content: see student services for class times and location.
