Better Writing in Six Weeks

Also see Better Style in 10 Weeks.

If you'd like to improve your writing, but your schedule won’t permit you to devote large blocks of time to the effort, this email course might be for you.

Every Wednesday for six weeks you will receive a new lesson, delivered to your email inbox for you to do as your schedule permits.

Each lesson consists of four components: two sets of exercises, a lesson drawn from the best of my previously published columns, and a helpful resource or recommendation for further reading. The exercises, in the form of a brief pre-test and post-test, are fun to do, and the lesson is easy to understand and apply to your everyday writing.

Give it more time if you can, but you can learn to write more effectively by devoting as little as 10 minutes a week.

Topics, Series 1:
               Punctuation errors
               Email protocol
               Correct usage (word choice)
               Writer's block
               Proofreading techniques
               Habits of good writing

Topics, Series 2:
               Dangling and misplaced modifiers
               Inclusive language
               Parallel structure
               Passive voice
               Proofreading errors

Both series also include a seventh review lesson.

All instruction and exercises are intended for you to work on independently. (In other words, your subscription does not include individual feedback or review of your work.) So that you know if you are doing the exercises correctly, I include answers and explanations.

As an incentive for you to try "Better Writing in Six Weeks," I'll send you by email attachment a free PDF edition of Writing by Wilbers, my second book of collected columns, which you can read on your computer or handheld device.

Because of variable shipping costs, this offer of
a reduced-price book is available only to U.S. purchasers.
