Praise for Dick's Workshops

Jacqueline M. BanaszynskiDick Weiss is the real deal. He loves great storytelling, and knows how to help journalists find their way to reporting and writing with purpose, clarity, detail and voice. After a long career in newsrooms, he also knows the demands of daily journalism, and can help journalists bring a little magic to the mundane.

Ken FusonDick is that rare combination — a great writer who can teach others how to do it. His enthusiasm for the craft of reporting and story-telling inspires reporters (not an easily inspired group). I’ve learned something new and valuable each time I’ve heard him talk.

Dick Weiss makes you think. He turns ideas upside down and works wonders with words. A newsroom veteran, he has coached writers of every level, on every beat, and has helped editors across the country. Whether you want to get better at cranking out a quick daily, or need help navigating a year-long project, Dick will make you see stories more clearly. And he'll make you laugh.
