Course Description

In the mood for an entirely different Stampede experience? Want to improve your business English? How about dedicating a week (and because it’s summer, we’ll make that a four-day week) to transforming your writing? Your ability to write lean and persuasive documents that capture the reader’s attention, communicate your message clearly, and convey that you are a careful and respectful communicator is integral to your success. That’s why this boot camp is such a great career and personal investment for anyone who wants to review the basics of good writing. Plan to leave this course with enhanced skills that will make your writing sparkle. We start with the basics of grammar and punctuation, move on to style principles, and then review best processes and practices in business correspondence. The class concludes with an examination of some editing tools and techniques, and a review of resources that will help you continue to refine your writing skills.
