Writing for Library Workplace and Career Success - Webinar (02/05/19)

Memos, e-mails, newsletters, social media posts, newspaper articles, blogs, reports, and plans: Most workplaces require you to write well, particularly if you want to be promoted, have your ideas be accepted, or earn more responsibility. But some people focus on other technical and professional skills until they find they need to catch up with their written communication skills in a hurry.

Learn the importance of identifying your target audience and setting goals before you begin writing, tricks for “self-editing,” why the grammar police often are wrong, writing for social media outlets, and why less is more.

Outcomes for this class include impressing bosses and co-workers, writing liking the person you want to be, and becoming more influential in your written interactions.
