“Sue is a very engaging and knowledgeable trainer who provides you with practical tips to enhance your writing. Sue also adds value to the training course agenda where possible. I found the course very productive as it allowed you to work on your own projects with Sue providing guidance and feedback as you developed your work. I would highly recommend this training to anyone looking to learn and improve their writing skills.” – Jess
“I found the writing course was of great benefit because it went beyond theoretical learnings and was applied to actual working documents. This provided both a learning opportunity and a way to stay on top of existing deadlines.” – Fiona Merida
Director of The Comms Collective, Sue White, runs tailored writing training sessions to help your employees radically improve their writing skills. We have a range of workshops on offer – we come to you to run a course in house for your group. If you’d like something different to what’s on offer, contact us and we’ll organise a tailored training to help your team.
Work with Sue and you’ll learn the art of writing well from someone whose work is published in some of Australia’s largest newspapers and magazines.
In addition to Sue’s ten years experience as a successful freelance journalist, she has years of experience training and mentoring, both privately via her personal website and through the Australian Writers’ Centre.
Despite what it may look like, Sue is no stranger to the corporate world: she spent ten years as a communications specialist before moving to journalism, and her copywriting skills are in demand: Sue has oversight over all of The Comms Collective’s copywriting projects.
Through a tailored writing training (typically for one to two days), Sue can help your team members:
- Become better writers.
- Approach the writing process more efficiently.
- Use structure and planning to their advantage.
- Understand what’s gone wrong with written pieces that haven’t worked in the past. (And why their boss/client/editor kept spitting them back.)
- Change the way they write according to the client’s needs or the material they are working on (ie: web writing and writing a technical report require two very different approaches).
- Understand storytelling and what makes a good story.
- Understand the importance of a great hook or lead (and how to write one).

I learned the benefit of planning and applying structure to all writing tasks.
I liked that there were real life work examples to work through, so we learnt but also completed [our own] work tasks.
I learned to plan, plan, plan, and to think about my reader: who they are and what they will do with the information.
The presenter had an easy and engaging style. I learnt so much…but it also reminded me of old techniques that were no longer habits.
