We all know what good writing is. It’s the novel we can’t put down, the poem we never forgot, and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the letter that gets action and the report that conveys what a phone call can’t.

In professional 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 own writing. This half-day workshop will give you key tools to become a better writer.
