Want to transform your writing from good to great? Good writing isn't just for Hemingway; it makes good sense for daily business, too. This 3-hour refresher workshop targets the most common writing errors in organization, grammar, and style that are seen across NIH administrative and scientific staff writing challenges.

Please note you should bring writing samples and a writing project to class. You will also receive resources and a checklist to keep handy.

This course is the successful outgrowth of a pilot workshop series previously conducted for high-performing OD employees. The instructor has served as a writing consultant for NIH scientists and administrators, is a published medical author, possesses a Masters in teaching English, and has taught English grammar in the US and Europe.
