Believe it or not, effective writing is not nearly as arduous as you might presume. Our presenter is the author of 65 books, and yet to this day he denotes that he does not like to write himself. In fact, in college, professors would mark up his term papers with more commentary than he had written in the paper! If you’re intrigued, this could be your session. It will cover the basics of better writing including watching your prepositions, avoiding preambles, keeping your sentences short and to the point. Jeff will talk about parallel construction, using commas effectively, avoiding weak verbs, and a variety of other simple to adopt techniques.
No need to break out the grammar book or feel as if you’re back in English Composition 101. Jeff’s lively and focused approach to better writing will help you to make a difference in short order.
