What You’ll Get

What You’ll Master

Write Correctly

Let’s face it—grammar mistakes are embarrassing and make you seem less professional. (And as you may have found out the hard way, spelling and grammar checkers don’t catch everything!) Wordsmith begins with a refresher course on grammar and style, so you can nail down the basics before moving onto more complex aspects of writing.

Two
Write Clearly

Have you ever had to explain yourself over multiple emails? Unclear communication results in lost productivity and a whole lot of frustration. Learn smart ways to make sure people get what you’re saying, the first time.

Three
Write Concisely

There’s a rule of thumb in writing—“don’t say in three sentences what you can say in one.” Rambling writing makes you appear unsure and indecisive. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to be your own most ruthless editor, paring down long sentences to only the most important words.

Four
Consider Context

Context is about “meeting people where they’re at.” This advanced writing skill prompts you to consider who your readers are and what they already know.

Five
Consider Culture

How can you make sure your writing is inclusive for people of different ages, genders, cultures, races and ethnicities? How can you avoid mistakenly excluding people, such as people with disabilities, with your word choice? This advanced course empowers you to write as a professional in today’s modern world.
