Accelerator: Get to the Point: Learn to Write Well (1045565)

Accelerator: Get to the Point: Learn to Write Well

Self-doubt and jargon are two impediments to good writing. That little voice that says, “This stinks,” when you write can be silenced. And jargon can be translated into English. Steps toward accomplishing those things and many other hurdles along the path to effective writing will be addressed in this course. You’ll learn to:
Do your homework. The best writing comes from the best reporting and research. You can write with authority when you know your stuff. (When you don’t know your stuff, readers can smell BS a mile away.)
Picture an audience and write for it. (Your mother, neighbor, or co-worker who knows virtually nothing about the topic, for example.)
Write tight, as editors say. Focus on the key points, and be concise while addressing them.
Write conversationally – to tell a story as you would to the person sitting in the church pew or on the barstool next to you.
Use details and descriptions, as well as quotes to humanize your writing and make it relevant to your audience.
Please Note: Your full participation includes attending all classes which will earn you a credential that highlights the time and effort you put into this program. The credential badge can be added to your LinkedIn profile and resume to help you stand out to recruiters.
