We offer practical workshops, personalized coaching, stellar writing, polished editing, engaging presentations, and adaptive web design!
We deliver workshops on business and technical writing, plain language, grammar, style, and editing basics. And more!
A customized workshop is an excellent opportunity for people to improve their writing and revising skills and become more competent and efficient writers. The workshops are a carefully balanced mix of short presentations, discussion, and practice.
Whatever the needs of your organization, Green Fuse can tailor a workshop to fit your communication needs. Potential scenarios could be an engineering department taking a two-day effective technical writing workshop, an administration team taking a three-hour workshop on clear, correct and concise emails, or a group of managers taking a one-day workshop on improving the review process for major documents.
We provide one-on-one coaching that is customized to address your specific issues and is based on writing samples that you provide. You will find that this approach is the best way to quickly improve your writing skills and become a more confident and correct writer. Many of our clients are non-native English speakers.
These coaching sessions will help you build on your particular writing strengths and identify specific areas that you need to focus on. You will receive a personalized toolbox of resources that will help you tackle future writing projects. You should be prepared to commit at least ten hours to benefit fully from this individualized coaching program. Individualized coaching can also complement a business writing workshop.
We write dynamic content that clearly communicates its intended message and achieves the desired results.
Our areas of writing expertise include education, science and technical, environmental communications, and arts and culture. We’ve written proposals, reports, speeches, style guides, media releases, curricula, radio scripts, and marketing materials. Margaret wrote the curricula for the Writing and Editing for Business Certificate and the Professional Editing Certificate at Mount Royal University. And in 2017, she wrote her first book. Steven has written hundreds of technical reports for the energy industry.
We can also help you with getting your message heard, creating a single voice from a multi-author document, writing plain language materials, adapting print content for web, and researching content.
We ensure quality control—in grammar, style, structure, and design. We bring our passion for clean and concise language to all our editing projects, whether it’s an annual report, an RFP, promotional materials, or web copy. We’re big fans of plain English and enjoy making words easier to understand and to read. Our mantra: everything clear on first reading.
Most writers—no matter how good their writing is—could use an editor. We will help you create the best possible product while preserving your style and voice. We can also write an in-house style guide to ensure consistent copy or work with you to implement a review process that minimizes delays and frustrations.
We design and deliver many informative and inspirational presentations on topics ranging from plain language for the legal profession to the history of the English language. You might think that a presentation on common grammar myths makes for a dull presentation, but let us surprise you! Attendees will leave with some fresh ideas and insights about the ever-fascinating and sometimes maddening English language.
An in-house presentation can also help you create a work culture that cares about writing.
If your website needs renovating or a complete overhaul, we can help you. We typically combine complete rewrites and edits in the process.
We care about the aesthetics and working efficiency of the site and use DIVI templates or child themes to help make the website unique to your business.
Margaret’s business writing workshops provide my team with important tools and resources to improve our writing skills using a fun, friendly approach. I have brought her back three times in the past five years to keep my teams’ skills sharp and the workshops are a great training experience for new staff. I highly recommend Margaret and look forward to working with her again.
