Writers' Workshop: Business Writing – How to Get your Point Across in a Clear and Interesting Way
Class Instructor Angela Foster
During this fun and fast paced class, we’ll read and discuss actual newsletters, blogs, and letters to the editor. We’ll tear them apart and put them back together again to create interesting reads. You’ll walk away from this class with an understanding of the pitfalls to avoid and the skill to create work your readers will enjoy.
This project is funded in part with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
