Communicating in writing

To make yourself clearly understood, to exchange ideas effectively, to communicate with clients and build their confidence in you, you need to write well. That’s what this workshop is all about.

The first part of the session takes the form of a ‘health check’ looking at the way we write now. Together we’ll revisit spelling, vocabulary and grammar before moving on to editing, clarity and creative writing.

Through a series of practical exercises, you’ll discover how the written word can support the creative process and the communication of concepts and you’ll leave with renewed confidence in your writing.
