About the workshop …
Structured writing is a research-based approach to writing that is highly effective for all types of documents. The approach provides writers with a consistent framework for developing their documents in an efficient way. And it provides readers with information that’s easy to find, easy to understand and easy to act on.
It can be applied to writing any type of document, including emails, business reports and proposals, training materials, documentation of all types including policies and procedures, and web content.
In this hands-on interactive workshop we’ll look at how to follow a writing process that will make it easy for you to become more efficient in your writing and create documents that will get the results you want.
