How to Improve Your Writing: Email, Blogs, Social Media, and More

Today, many of us find we are talking through our fingers on keyboards and touch-screens more than we are talking face-to-face and on the phone. This increased need for writing, both in and out of the workplace, requires us to improve our writing skills. Strong writing skills lead to smoother communications and fewer misunderstandings. This highly engaging, interactive course will give you the tips and techniques you need to gain confidence in your writing for emails, social media posts, personal blogs and websites. Gather your pens, pencils, laptops and tablets. Let’s get ready to write!

Writing for Business

This course is a must for people who write the following for business: announcements, briefing notes, decision-papers, emails, instructions, letters, reports and/or web-content. Strong writing skills lead to smoother communications, fewer misunderstandings and increased productivity. Learn the plain language principles that will help you make your written communications easy to read and understand. Demonstrations, videos, and hands-on exercises will help you gain confidence in your writing and learn which grammar gremlins (including punctuation) make the difference between clarity and confusion.
