Mr. D's goal:

To provide educators with the tools and confidence to become effective and enthusiastic teachers of writing, without burdensome planning and assessment.

Empowered teachers, excited students, increased writing assessment scores and lots of inspiration follow in the wake of Mark Diamond's Writing to Command Attention! workshops.

With humorous irreverence and exuberance, Mark presents his simple, sensible and original narrative, persuasive/opinion/argumentative and informative/explanatory methods to thousands of elementary and secondary educators each year with only one objective in mind: To provide teachers with the tools and confidence to be enthusiastic instructors of writing, without  burdensome planning and assessment.

To this end, Mark deconstructs professional contemporary writing samples to construct and refine his original training methods. The end result is effective writing that commands the attention of the intended reader from start to finish.
