Why improve your writing skills?
“The limits of my language are the limits of my universe.” Ludwig Wittgenstein
Written communication has never been so important. In a world where people resort to emails rather than phone calls, and blogs rather than letters, knowing how to make your writing effective is vital to success.
Good grammar is credibility, especially on the Internet. Poor punctuation and disorganised sentence structures not only confuse a reader but also detract from your authority, making the wrong impression.
Good grammar is also good business; and in good business, details are everything. If your writing doesn’t show you care about the details of punctuation, structure or grammar, people might presume you don’t care about other details. In blog posts and emails, or even on Facebook, your words are all you have – so make them count.
Accurate use of grammar and punctuation will transform your writing and help you communicate in the way you intended. If you wonder about apostrophes, or avoid semi-colons at all costs, a little help will go a very long way.
Upcoming Master Classes
The classes are suitable for anyone keen to improve their writing skills in whatever genre (emails, letters, blogs, social media).
The day’s master class draws on a variety of sources and activities, with exercises that require silent and individual work. There will be opportunities to share work amongst the group for those willing to do so.
