(PRWEB) May 5, 2006
As of May 2006, more than 50,000 people worldwide had completed “writing help guru” Shaun Fawcett’s online writing courses. These free e-mail courses are unique in the way that they focus on a practical “hands on” approach to day-to-day business and personal writing. The courses are based on using real-life examples of actual written documents, rather than trying to write using dry and often convoluted grammar textbooks.
“When I offered my first online writing mini-course back in early 2002, I had no idea to what extent these would be embraced by people from all over the globe. Now, I get dozens of e-mails each week from far and wide thanking me for sharing my practical approach to everyday writing” said Fawcett recently.
What started out as one small mini-course has blossomed into four multiple-lesson series of e-mail courses, each focused on a particular type of practical writing:
1. Tips and Tricks for Writing Success – This is the original general-purpose course covering everything from writing letters, to resumes, to e-mails and reports.
2. Business Writing Tips and Tricks – Focuses on business letter writing and report writing.
3. Letter Writing Success Secrets – Targets letter-writing in general and is based on the Top 10 Letters ever written.
4. Online Book Publishing Secrets – Explains how to write, publish and market your own book or ebook without having to use the, often dysfunctional, traditional publishing model.
A one-stop registration page is now available where people can sign up for one or more courses:
Fawcett added “The popularity of these courses tells me that many people are more comfortable using a practical, rather than academic, approach to their day-to-day writing. I believe it’s because they can relate better to real-life examples and situations when they have to write something.”
He says he will be adding a 5th course this summer on the subject of “How To Write How-To Books or eBooks” for anyone who has a hobby, interest or activity they want to write about.
