With much of today’s business being conducted through electronic communications, important corporate relationships often hinge on the writer’s skill. As the world becomes smaller through technology, the written word becomes a vital link and leaves an important impression about your company. Write to the Point! seminars can help your company address writing issues that hinder clear communication. Each seminar is individually prepared based on your company’s needs, but topics commonly requested include: • What is the most important first step in writing? • How can writers generate ideas and then organize them? • Is there a simple way to assure subject and verb agreement? • What is the difference between active and passive voice and when is each effective? • How can crippling writer’s block be overcome? • What is the difference between that and which, or who and whom? • What is the most misused part of speech and how can this glaring problem be corrected? • What is parallel structure and how can it make your writing more readable?
