How to Become a Smarter Writer by Solving Word Puzzles
Since the advent of the Internet, the demand for people who can write concisely and persuasively has grown dramatically. In annual surveys conducted between 2000 and 2020 by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, communication skills – clear writing and speaking – topped the list of “the skills that employers prize most.” Communication skills consistently ranked above analytical skills, technical skills, computer skills, and creativity. But employers generally agreed that most college graduates “lack writing skills.”
In the online Smarter Writer class, we will take the first steps in learning how to treat sentences as word puzzles, and how to solve writing problems by putting the pieces together. We will begin by looking at the fundamental language patterns that skilled professional writers and editors rely on to communicate clearly with their readers – in plain English.
