  1. What steps do you hope to use to improve your own writing skills?
    • Attend writing workshops
    • Practice writing articles
    • Read on a regular basis – blogs, books and challenging materials paying attention to sentence
    structure, word choice and how the material flows
    • Find a writing partner

    Usually i look at what other creative people have done in my field and get inspired by their
    work.
