Writer's Studio Effective Writing

Improve your writing for greater clarity, organization, and persuasiveness. The University of Chicago’s Writer’s Studio invites you to take our Effective Writing for Business and the Professions course for better communication in business and beyond.

In the workplace, writing succeeds when it is easy to read, efficient, and valuable. The more you know, the more difficult it can be to communicate your expertise clearly and persuasively. To share your expertise with others, you must organize your material, structure your ideas, and frame your concepts in language that is both precise enough to be accurate and direct enough to be clear to your reader. This course introduces techniques you can use to diagnose and revise your writing so that it will succeed with any readers, from colleagues to clients to the general public. Tuition includes course materials.
