Writing911.com is now offering its two popular business writing e-courses starting the first Monday of every month. These “Writing for the Real World” classes emphasize easy ways to identify and correct the problems most often found in workplace writing, helping you improve your writing skills and write better at work.
"Making Your Writing Correct" is a four-week e-course that reviews some of the most common grammar and punctuation errors, such as using the wrong word (e.g., its versus it's, that versus which) and subject-verb agreement. It also reviews how to fix misplaced modifiers, run-ons, and incomplete sentences.
"Making Your Writing Clear and Concise" is a four-week e-course that focuses on finding and repairing the weak spots in your writing. You'll learn how to build better sentences and paragraphs and how to get to the point more quickly by cutting deadwood phrases, redundancies, and clichés. It also reviews a handful of writing tricks that will make your writing easier to read.
Each course lasts four weeks, starting on the first Monday of each month. Lectures and exercises are distributed on Mondays, and participants can work at their own pace at any time during week. Each week’s materials take one to two hours to complete.
The registration fee of $99 includes weekly lectures and exercises, an online discussion board for e-course participants only, and free access to selected Writing911.com tip sheets. The fee also includes two personal reviews of your writing by the course instructor -- once at the start of the course to help pinpoint problem areas and once after the course to identify areas that have improved and those that may still need work.
Registrations are accepted at http://www.Writing911.com three months in advance through the Friday after the session starts. Classes are limited to 15 people per session.
“These highly rated e-courses are perfect for people who need a quick refresher course to help them improve their writing skills, especially in the workplace,” says instructor Kivi Leroux Miller, president of Writing911.com.
Here’s what participants in previous sessions have said about the e-courses:

“The class is for someone who has a good understanding of writing, but needs a little brush up on techniques.”
“I liked the entire course. One can incorporate this class into any busy lifestyle.”
