In business writing, the language is concrete, the point of view is clear, and the points are well expressed. Good writing is hard work, and even the best writers get discouraged. However, with practice you can feelmore confident about your own writing. Learn to:

  • Identify and adapt writing as appropriate to the intended audience, translating terminology into accessible language,
  • Use verbiage that is professional and audience focused,
  • Understand the proper format for technical reports, memos, letters, and emails,
  • Write and proofread your work so it is clear, concise, complete, accurate, and polished, and
  • Apply these skills in real world situations.
