Sometimes it’s better to get straight to the point, in a way that doesn’t waste your reader’s time yet doesn’t compromise your professionalism either. This course teaches you how to use plain language to address your reader’s needs.
What do they really need to know? What do you want them to do? We’ll teach you how to think about your reader’s purpose and to write for them so they get the message and your writing does its job.
