The Writing Circle is a writing training program specifically designed for people who write as part of their job, but who do not consider themselves to be professional writers. Any workplace writing is relevant.
Our programs are designed to help you improve your writing skills and build your writing confidence. Through a combination of writing activities, brainstorming, and group discussion, you’ll learn to think about writing from the perspective of readers.
The Writing Circle is not a course in grammar. Instead, it focuses on successful strategies for writing documents that make sense to readers, appeal to busy readers, and successfully communicate a clear message.
We acknowledge that our participants are highly literate, competent, and busy. Our programs are built around real examples of documents that illustrate key concepts about communication and writing ─ including emails, letters, reports, websites, and brochures.
This workshop is designed for people who understand the basics of good writing but want strategies to improve their editing and attention to detail. You will learn how to edit in cycles, cut word length, proofread with care, and give constructive feedback. Bring along a laptop or your preferred writing device for a practical, hands-on session, including a working lunch.
