Week 4: The Finishing Touches

It takes conscious effort and discipline to work through the writing process--to plan, write a draft, revise the draft to make sure your content suits your purpose and your audience, edit for conciseness and clarity, and finally to proof for quality. When you follow the process, your writing will be stronger. But there are still some finishing touches that will make your documents even better. In this module, we'll talk about writing introductions and conclusions, writing executive summaries, writing as a team, and writing for electronic media.

Learned a lot on how to build paragraphs and use active voice instead of passive. Little details really make a difference when communicating in writing.

by CKMay 4th 2018

A course for every one. Good representation of the different aspects of writing.
