All writing should be clear, concise, complete, and correct. We will look at each of these elements in detail during this session.
Lesson 3: Writing Mechanics
In this session, participants will take a close look at the proper length of paragraphs, what a paragraph should contain, and how to order paragraphs.
Lesson 4: Dealing with Specific Requests
Often people are asked to respond to a request for information or to write a particular letter (of recommendation, for example). We’ll discuss some tips to keep in mind when writing one of these particular documents. Participants will also get some hands-on practice with writing letters of request.
