Writing Skills for NIH Employees
In this one-day workshop, you'll learn the three dimensions of professional writing: organization, format, and style. Using the Business Writers Handbook, you will become familiar with the generally accepted principles governing day-to-day correspondence. You will review how to improve your writing skills by applying plain English principles, such as writing in the active voice. You will also discuss how to manage the writing and editing process when working with a team of contributors. The instructor will focus on letters and memos (whether delivered on paper by mail, or electronically by email), reports, and executive summaries.
