About Us Image

After 20 years teaching college composition, Shelley Blanton-Stroud established What’s Your Point? to help organizations achieve their goals through clear, purposeful writing. Shelley has conducted writing and literary workshops and coaching sessions for many audiences in many settings, including engineers, lawyers and economists working to improve the clarity of their writing for non-expert readership, academics looking to update their methods at professional conferences, authors seeking online or in-person critiques, community literary discussion groups wanting to read more thoughtfully, and her own college students, needing help to develop university-level analysis.

Because Shelley and her husband have raised two hungry sons, she knows very well that it is easy to cook somebody dinner. But it is smart to teach them to cook their own. Shelley does more than fix your drafts. She teaches you to fix your own. She knows that with clear and friendly workshops to introduce new strategies and positive, individual coaching to reinforce them, everyone in your organization can learn to write with purpose and clarity.
