    Free members-only event

    Former New York Times Op-Ed editor Trish Hall wants to help you get your point across.

    Join us on August 19th at 12 p.m. EST via Zoom for a conversation between Hall and WMG member Lydia Denworth, Contributing Editor at Scientific American and author of Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life’s Fundamental Bond. Hall will share her illuminating insights on the techniques and psychology of persuasive writing and answers your questions, while divulging stories of editing everyone from Nobel Prize winners and global strongmen (Vladimir Putin) to first-time pundits (Angelina Jolie). Some of the topics she’ll discuss:    

    • The most crucial element of persuasive writing (and communicating)
    • How to startle and surprise your audience
    • Why some of the smartest people and ideas don’t gain traction
    • How to make someone like what you’re writing (or saying)

    Hall spent years immersed in argument, passion, and trendsetting ideas―but also in tangled sentences, migraine-inducing jargon, and dull-as-dishwater writing. In her talk and Q&A, she’ll highlight what works, what doesn’t, and how to effectively communicate above the digital noise. Of her clear, concise, and beguiling book, Writing to Persuade (which Publishers Weekly calls “profound”), bestselling author Adam Grant says, “She turns drivel into prose and rambling thoughts into elegant arguments. At long last, she’s revealing her secret sauce.”

    A not-to-be-missed master class in the art of persuasion, click here to sign up for the event.  And don’t forget to buy a copy of Trish Hall's indispensable book, Writing to Persuade, now available in paperback and Lydia Denworth's book, Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life’s Fundamental Bond.

    Jill's theme is: Bourbon Night - BYOB!

    A message from Jill: In ordinary times, I would host a Bourbon night with a tasting of several spirits and a discussion of the merits of each, followed by some tasty supper - maybe Bourbon sloppy joes with cheddar cheese and pickled onions. But we will make do with a virtual meet up. So IF you are a Bourbon fan, have a favorite bottle or cocktail on hand and share your thoughts and enthusiasm with us. Why is it your go to choice? What brought you to Bourbon? What recipes have you tried (if any) that work with this spirit? If you are NOT a Bourbon fan, join in anyway! Any drink will do. Obviously we will move on to the topics of the day: how we are all surviving; what we have learned from this pandemic; best reading (a most subjective question) for this period; and the most binge worthy TV we have each discovered. And anything else you want to discuss! See you later in the summer. Cheers!

    The world is in crisis mode as a result of the coronavirus, and women in particular are more overwhelmed, stressed and exhausted…all the time. But in spite of stress, you can learn how to read the signs that your body is sending, make better choices in time and food/drink consumption without feeling guilty or desperate, and optimize your wellbeing. 

      

    During this virtual session, you’ll learn:

    • Sharon’s insider tips for knowing exactly what is on your plate and loving the results  
    • New techniques for connecting to what your body is saying and getting to the root of symptoms, understanding the connection and what it means for you and your lifestyle, and taking action, trusting yourself and transforming your life  


    Sharon Holand Gelfand, a functional diagnostic nutritionist, coach and speaker, transforms the lives of health minded professional women who are stressed out and overwhelmed by getting to the root of their most common health complaints through target testing, not guessing. She incorporates the results with their symptoms and flexible food choices to find the missing pieces of their health puzzle so they can reclaim their health and their lives. Sharon is also the creator of The G.U.T. Method®, a 3-step system to empower you to take back control of your health and the basis for her new book, The G.U.T. Method: Secrets Beyond Your Plate for Healthier, More Energetic Living.
