Clear communication is a key to professional success in just about any field, but it’s especially important in social work and public health.

This workshop will help participants sharpen their writing skills for use in a variety of contexts, from news releases to academic papers. Asking good questions, eliminating unclear phrases, self-editing, and knowing your audience will be among the topics.
Participants will provide writing samples and get hands-on coaching as they edit their own material and the writing of others.

Class size is limited to 30.
