Write Well University, a virtual training company, announced its fall and winter curriculum. Offerings include individual coaching, writing circles, and three distinct writing programs, all designed to help people overcome their writing hurdles.

Two years ago, Write Well University's president, Dawn Goldberg, was a successful virtual assistant to business owners, whose writing skills varied widely. In her work with them she wrote thousands of words, from web copy to online marketing material, each time using her strong writing skills as an asset to her clients' businesses. As a result, her clients and their businesses thrived.

"I soon became the writing expert," says Goldberg. "All my clients knew that I could write and write well, and they wanted to take advantage of that. It occurred to me that I could use my skills as a former English teacher and my passion for all things words-related to create a program to help people become stronger writers. There was a need, and I knew I could help.

That help came in the form of Goldberg's new company, Write Well University.

"Writing well has become something of a lost art," continues Goldberg. "Yet it's so important. It affects every aspect of our lives. Companies complain that their employees can't write well and can't communicate. Professionals desperately want to develop products, many of them written, and are afraid of writing. People want to write for personal reasons, whether it's a novel or personal essay, and they have a tough time getting started. We want to make sure that what's being communicated is what we truly want to impart to the reader. Writing well is essential to being successful."

After two years of research and development, Write Well University opened its virtual doors in June, offering programs to meet the needs of struggling as well as proficient writers who want to strengthen their writing skills. The cornerstone of offerings is the Writing Essentials Program, a twenty-four week course delivered by telephone and an online collaboration tool. The intense writing program incorporates a focus on sentence structure and mechanics as well as style and voice

Goldberg credits the success of the program with the unique mixture of mechanics with writing style. "Most people think these are two separate subjects," says Goldberg. "Even in traditional English classes, grammar and writing are taught separately. People don't get the opportunity to understand how grammar affects style and meaning and how writing incorporates aspects of sentence mechanics." Another unique feature of her programs is that a trainer reviews every piece of writing participants produce. "That's huge," Goldberg shared. "To have someone looking at what you wrote and letting you know what works and what doesn't makes a huge impact on your development as a writer. I'd like to take the Writing Essentials Program myself!"

The next session of the Writing Essentials Program begins September 10, 2007, with four spots still available. Other Write Well University programs are open for fall 2007 as well.
