Content Strategy - Minneapolis/St. Paul Message Board › Writing & coaching event by our group for local nonprofits

Writing & coaching event by our group for local nonprofits

Hi, all.
There are hundreds of nonprofits in the metro area who are doing great things but they don't have a clear, succinct description of their organizations - something they could say to a person in a coffee shop and he'd immediately grasp what the nonprofit does and say,"cool."

What if our Meetup group created an event for nonprofits where a bunch of us coach nonprofits about developing a clear, succinct message about what they do? Here's an example of a nonprofit message that needs help: "We work to build self-advocacy." What does that mean? Why should I care? Instead, how about "We teach people to speak up for themselves."

By way of background, I am in a team leadership training program that requires I complete a project by November 15. I must build a team and that team must do something inspirational for others.

I turn to you because content strategists are good writers with good hearts. Is anyone game to form a creative team with me to plan and coach nonprofits through a low-key, free but super-productive event? The only requirement is that you're a good writer and are comfortable helping others improve their writing.

We'll have an in-person meeting, a handful of conference calls, and come up with an event format that will result in nonprofits leaving with a clear and courageous "coffee shop" message about their organizations while making a big difference for local nonprofits. And we get to leave with warm hearts.

Let me know if you're willing to play between now and November 15! Email me at or call me at 651-210-0911.
