Business Writing

Writing is a central element of the business world—through emails, social media, memos, marketing materials, and a myriad of other forms. Whether you seek to inform, persuade, or inspire—success or failure often depends on the power of your words and sentences. Good writing skills will enhance your image, increase your confidence, boost your productivity, and help you achieve your objectives. On a daily basis. And these skills may very well guide you to higher places in your career.

Note: This course touches on grammar and style points, but these things are covered more fully in Write It Right.

Business Writing | Intensive
 

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You're likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan. (NYC Hotel Information.)

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.



Topics include: identifying your point, knowing your audience, striking the right tone, following a process, and writing in a way that is clear, concise, conversational, and colorful.

Prerequisite: Students must speak and write in English with native fluency.
