“Most great teachers can’t write, and most great writers can’t teach. Shani Raja is one of the few who excels at both. I managed dozens of reporters and editors during my 12-year career at Bloomberg News, including Shani. Now he’s the person I go to when I want help with my writing.” NICOLAS JOHNSON, FORMER BLOOMBERG AND GLOBE AND MAIL EDITOR, AND NOW POLITICAL CANDIDATE FOR PARLIAMENT OF ONTARIO, CANADA.
“As a young reporter my prose might have been robotic and jargon-laden if not for Shani’s watchful eye and attention to the elusive human interest behind ostensibly technical stories. Beyond the standard reporting skills–like accuracy, clarity and integrity–I also learned refinement, how to withstand impulses toward glibness and cynicism that can naturally set in when oft revisiting the same beat. Shani will teach you how to write well, and with grace.” HAWA ALLAN, JOURNALIST AND FICTION WRITER.
