What about digital writing tools? Won’t those do the same for me as this course?

Digital writing tools are helpful! Typically, they catch misspellings; grammatical errors, such as subject/verb agreement issues; weak usage of the passive voice and other writing mistakes. Sophisticated programs suggest stronger word choice and ways to cut down on wordiness, for example. Nevertheless, the operative word in “digital writing tools” is “tools,” where “tools” are resources meant to aid a writer-not supplant him or her. Digital writing tools should be an instrument instead of a crutch. No A.I. can replace good, old-fashioned, solid knowledge of writing. Three hours and practice isa small investment for a lifetime of certainty in writing.

Can’t I just read a couple of articles on a website and learn the same thing?

This course is the culmination of more than a decade’s work of researching, teaching, revising, tweaking, practicing, and distilling writing into a few hours of high impact, digestible content and exercises. I’ve done the heavy lifting so that you don’t have to.

Who needs to learn a formula for writing? And GRAMMAR, too? It’s all about freedom of expression…

Indeed, the world is careening toward informality (e.g., thx, wyd, brb)-all the more reason to master writing to stand out. Tomorrow’s leaders will be master communicators, able to comfortably navigate between formal and informal contexts in writing and speech. Learning a fool-proof formula takes the guess work out of writing tasks and ensures you produce consistently high caliber results when you need to. Investing a little time on the back end takes out the cold sweats, procrastination, fear, and dread of writing on the front end. Mastering just enough grammar to understand how to craft a beautiful piece of writing means you confidently approach tasks anytime, anywhere, and do not have to rely on technology or luck to help you.

Essay writing is a thing of the past-creative writing and copywriting reign supreme.

Essay writing is a tried-and-true template that provides rules and structure to play around with given the requirements of the writing task. While it is true that much internet communication leans toward copywriting and creative writing, much non-internet communication does not. Scholarship and admissions essays, standardized test essays, theses, dissertations, cover letters, and grant applications are all examples of formal writing that differ wildly from copywriting and creative writing. Mastering essay writing is at the foundation of producing strong work in many offline settings.
