Course Description

Trainees will polish their business and professional writing skills through intensive writing practice and feedback in a small group workshop setting. Instruction focuses on effective organization, improved editing techniques, and appropriate tones and formats for business communication. Word choice, style, idioms, and grammar are dealt with in the context of job-related writing samples to ensure that learning is focused, specific, and goal-oriented.

Trainees will produce effective documents and expand approaches to the writing process by drafting, revising and proofreading. Trainees are encouraged to bring in job, industry specific, or career- related materials to customize their participation to match their own needs.
