Write 2 the Point!

Professional Writing

Overview:

More energy is wasted on worthless writing – in both creating and reviewing it – than just about any other business activity. Fortunately, good writing can be easy with this course which lays the foundation for writing more precise and direct correspondence, documents, reports, etc. The theme of the course is how to make your written communications straight-forward, credible and easily understood.

Many people who have no trouble getting their point across when speaking have nothing but trouble when writing. Your words on their own, must capture your reader’s attention and convey your meaning-quickly and accurately.

Stressing conciseness, clarity and good organization in correspondence, this course is lively, informative and practices what it preaches. The manual is a useful guide of key points and rules that makes correct structure easy and painless.
