Our Approach to Training

Our credo is simple:  old-fashioned hard work is more reliable than gimmickry.

Because good training must be responsive, we customize every workshop.  We work hard to guarantee that each program will be practical, effective, and immediately useful.

  • We determine precisely what level of instruction your people need.
  • We develop unique exercises from your writers' on-the-job documents so that the training will be realistic and meaningful.
  • We have the participants write.
  • We provide constructive, overnight feedback on participants' in-class assignments and homework.
  • We minimize lectures and encourage questions, challenges, and debate.
  • We avoid English-teacher jargon and emphasize how the language works.
  • We stress readability -- clear thinking and plain talk -- as the writer's ultimate goal.
  • We introduce techniques your writers can employ to improve focus, completeness, coherence, clarity, conciseness, and tone.
