Description

This intensive six-week course in effective writing focuses on the strategies and techniques behind great persuasive writing in both politics and policy. Every element of the writing process will be explored and addressed, with special attention paid to those special problems you will face as a writer in the public, discursive world of emails, memos, articles, editorials, blogs, arguments, recommendations, refutations and explanations. Weekly writing assignments, along with many focused exercises, will hone skills and provide ample opportunity for feedback. Each course in the DPI communications series assumes a fluency with the English language.
