How to Become a Smarter Writer by Playing Games
In annual surveys that the National Association of Colleges and Employers conducted between 2000 and 2018, employers voiced a common complaint: Most college graduates “lack writing skills.”
Many capable professionals — particularly in scientific and technical fields — struggle with the simple act of writing concise, well-organized sentences and developing them into logically constructed paragraphs. Unfortunately, well-educated people often make the mistake of thinking that intelligent writing means expressing ideas in complicated sentences, stuffed with lots of inflated, mind-numbing jargon. http://science.sciencemag.org/content/277/5328/895
The focus of the 90-minute, online Smarter Writer class is on translating complex information into language that customers and colleagues can follow easily. We will treat sentences as word puzzles — and solve communication problems by putting the pieces together.
We will also look closely at specific language patterns that skilled professional writers and editors rely on to express ideas coherently — in plain English.
After completing the class, participants will have unlimited access to the Smarter Writer video, which reinforces the writing and editing techniques covered during the online workshop.
