BUSINESS WRITING THAT WORKS
COMMUNICATE IN WRITING
We all know what good writing is; it's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forget and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a call can't.
In business writing the language is concrete, the point of view is clear and the points are well expressed. Good writing is hard work and even the best writers get discouraged. however, with practice you can feel more confident about your writing.
For those who must write as part of their job, being able to write well is a career boot. You can learn how to capture your thoughts on paper so they are strong and persuasive. Express yourself confidently in a style that is always clear, concise, complete and correct.
