SEMINAR OUTLINE

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.

This two-day workshop will concentrate on the nitty-gritty details that writers have to contend with.  You will get some practical advice on making the job less difficult.  you will also have the opportunity to discuss your writing problems and share solutions with others in the workshop.
