We all know what good writing is. It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forgot, and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a phone call can't. 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 feel more confident about your own writing. In this course you will learn about Business Writing Skills and what it takes to be a good written communicator. By the end of this course you should have a much clearer idea of Business Writing and more specifically, you will be able to: Value good written communication. Write clear and concise sentences.
