Is the Trim & Tone Your Writing in 7 Easy Steps right for you?
Yes, if you can relate to any of these scenarios:
> You’re technically competent in your chosen field, but when you try to communicate with readers who are not, you don’t get the kind of responses you expect.
> Your job involves so much writing (and re-writing) that sometimes you feel overwhelmed by words and you want to develop some productive writing habits.
> You’re feeling depleted of writing energy and need some ideas to refresh your writing style.
> Your manager isn't involving you in interesting projects because your writing is not reliable. Maybe your miscommunication has caused problems for your team?
> You're working in a new (maybe higher) position and realise that your writing skills don't match the demands of the job – you need to upskill quickly before your lack is noticed.
> You’ve discovered that academic and technical writing skills are not as useful in the world of work as your university or college lecturers led you to believe.

Who is the course NOT for?
The course is relevant for anyone with basic English skills who has to write a lot everyday because their job depends on it.
If you’re an academic, blog, creative or copy writer, you will learn some terrific tips but the course does not target the writing challenges you normally face.
Punctuation and grammar are discussed but not taught. If you need a course that explains the difference between a full-stop and a semi colon or a comma splice and a contraction, this is not your course.
