We will learn the fundamentals of writing and apply them to three basic kinds of business writing. This class will give students a foundation with which they can write with confidence and clarity in the workplace.
There will be readings for the first three classes followed by three writing projects for the final three classes.

Lesson#3 Organization and process: what's the best way to go about writing?
Lesson#4 Project: Resume/Cover Letter

*Students should bring a notebook and pen. We will begin the writing process the old fashioned way.
