Key topics:

  • Reviewing structure & content

  • Using paragraphs & bullet points

  • Attacking wordiness

  • Common sentence problems

  • Writing in plain English

  • Editing and submitting.

This workshop is part of The Writing Circle's adult writing training program. Also currently available:

  • Writing university assignments - Monday 4 September
  • Writing essays and research reports - Monday 2 October

The Writing Circle offers writing training for adults who write as part of their work or study, but who do not consider themselves to be professional writers.

Our programs are designed to help you improve your writing skills and build your confidence. Through a combination of activities, brainstorming, and group discussion, you’ll learn to think about writing from the perspective of readers.

The Writing Circle focuses on successful strategies for approaching and finishing writing tasks. We acknowledge that our participants are highly literate, competent, and busy. Our programs are built around real documents that illustrate key concepts about communication and writing.
