Improving the quality of your writing starts with rethinking your assumptions and developing healthier writing habits. This book will help you do both.
Become a Better Writer: How to Write with Clarity and Simplicity is a practical guide for those who wish to write more clearly and concisely. Drawing on their extensive experience as writers and editors, the authors discuss tools and tips for making your writing accessible and meaningful to your target audience.
The book is readable and engaging, covering different kinds of writing (including reports, essays, emails, novels and speeches) across a wide range of subjects. It has been well-received: see reviews from the Daily Maverick, Sunday Times, TimesLive. The examples discussed are derived from real-world material and are particularly relevant to the African context. The book will be especially useful to writers of non-fiction.
Training in clear communication
Alongside the Clarity book, we offer customised training courses to fast-track the process of building your communication skills. Our training is primarily about clear communication skills, with an emphasis on writing. We cover a wide range of applications, from writing and editing to visualising data, and designing and delivering a speech or presentation. In all our courses, we emphasise the need to think carefully about your audience, the purpose of your communication and how you present your ideas.
We also offer workshop facilitation to help you kickstart a project with brainstorming and planning with key people. Our training and facilitation is inclusive and interactive, and can be delivered in person or online.
