    Being able to write well is an important communication skill, and one area where this skill is really tested is when we try to persuade. Will people buy your idea? Will you make them interested enough to meet with you and take it further? A poorly written paper or proposal is at best ineffective and at worst irritating for the reader.

    Good persuasive writing should be clear and logical, and beyond that should really speak to the reader about their specific needs. To find out how to craft reader- focused persuasive documents, join us on this great workshop. Get practical tools and tips to help you connect, be understood, and influence your readers.
    At the end of the workshops participants will:
    • understand the process for writing a good paper or proposal
    • know how to build logic and coherence into their papers
    • have learned how to take account of their reader and their needs
    • know how to craft a persuasive document
    • have developed their writing technique
