DPI-810M

This intensive seven week course in effective writing focuses on the strategies and techniques behind great persuasive writing in both politics and policy. We explore and address every element of the writing process, paying special attention to the public, discursive world of emails, memos, articles, editorials, blogs, arguments, and narrative essays. 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. Attendance at first class required.
