NewConcise Writing

When writing for business, it’s important to use concise language. This means that word choice is of the utmost importance. The goal of concise writing is to use the most effective words: when only these remain, your writing will be clear and readable.

This programme is designed to develop the skills of recognising and creating good content. We will focus on the following areas to achieve our objectives:

  • Composing sound sentences that make precise points
  • Employing language that readers will understand
  • Writing in the active voice
  • Untangling intricate constructions
  • Summarising long and complicated sentences palatable formats
  • Selecting necessary and well-chosen words
  • Improving sentence clarity

Focusing on vocabulary, grammar and style, the tasks will be real-life based. You’ll leave with practical tips and techniques that will immediately make you a stronger and more productive writer.
