This six-week course, which can be taken alone or in sequence with DPI-810M, gives you the tools to write and publish pieces in policy and academic journals, newspapers, magazines, and popular blogs, in such forms as the feature story, personal essay, academic essay, op-ed, and book proposal. Through workshops and intensive one-on-one editing, students will focus on advanced techniques in style, rhetoric, structure, argument, explanation, and storytelling. The goal is a confident, efficient, and vital writing and revision process.

Each course in the DPI communications series assumes a fluency with the English language.
