Word Workshop: Writing to Persuade: Hone Your Persuasive Writing Skills
photo credit: Ed Coyle Photography
Our writing courses have been described as “really about how to get better job reviews and get promoted” because they help you improve one of your most important, and visible, job skills: written communication.
Designed for advocates, attorneys, lobbyists, public affairs professionals, and anyone who must persuade others using the written word.
Do you suffer from “writer’s block” when you are asked to draft a one-page document, such as a position paper, in a clear, cogent, yet persuasive manner? If your answer is “yes”, this one-day program is for you. Our faculty will give you a practical framework for persuasive writing and specific strategies for writing persuasive documents through instruction and hands-on exercises.
This program will help you better write any document where you must persuade others.
