Whether by longhand or by computer, written communication plays a major role in our professional and private lives. We communicate with words in many ways: letters, contracts, advertisements, brochures, reports, handout materials for a class. All of the documents we write should be clear, complete, and appropriate. To accomplish these objectives we must organize and focus our efforts. Who is the audience? What do you want that audience to do after reading the document?

Using real life print and on-line examples, we’ll see how spelling, phrasing, punctuation, and grammar can make or break the message we wish to convey and learn how to tweak our own pens to achieve more effective communication.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Develop their own best outline formats for writing
• Understand the legal significance of complete written records
• Recognize the importance of true proofreading versus computer spelling and grammar checking
