Program objective:Writing like other art forms is essentially a craft. Everyone has a meaningful story to tell or a poem lingering in their heads and in their hearts. Some of us would one day like to write down our memoirs, or an op-ed in a newspaper or simply a good report at work. But not everyone knows how to make their writing interesting. In short, we all need a certain level of writing skills for our work or pleasure. Even experienced writers cannot afford to become complacent and allow their craft to stagnate.
This program is designed to improve your writing skills and allow you to reach your full writing potential.
