  • Write with a Purpose

    Ask yourself "Why am I writing this?" and give yourself a purpose for writing.
  • Choose Your Communication Medium

    We share written messages with others in numerous ways. Look closely at each of these mediums to help you make the right choice for each situation.
  • Consider Your Audience

    Even if the subject is the same, you often modify what you write and how you write it, depending on your readers.
  • Use Proper Grammar

    Compose clear-cut writing that is enjoyable and easy to understand. Writing that leaves your readers with a favorable impression of both you and your work.
