Business Writing Intensive

The Business Writing Intensive happens in a short time span (1 day in NYC, or 2 days on Zoom). The course includes a mixture of lectures and exercises. It’s open to writers of any level. Farther down, you can view a syllabus for this course.

For companies interested in our Business Writing program, see this brochure or visit our Corporate Classes page.

In business, your writing counts. It’s a projection of yourself (and your company) just as much as what you wear or how you conduct yourself in a meeting. Good writing skills will enhance your image, increase your confidence, boost your productivity, and help you achieve your objectives on a daily basis.

Here you will learn the basic principles of good business writing, which you can immediately put into action—on anything from simple emails to complex documents. You’ll also be surprised at how entertaining the course is, and by how much “personality” can play a part in your business writing.

Whether you seek to pick up the basics or polish your skills, you’ll soon be writing with less stress and more success.

About Business Writing
Business Writing Intensive

Through this course, I was able to better structure, outline, and simplify my memos and documents.

This course touches on grammar and style points, but these things are covered more fully in Grammar 1 and Grammar 2.

This is not an English-as-second-language course. It’s fine if English is not your first language, but you must speak and write it fluently.
