About This Class

The old saying goes that a "picture is worth a thousand words." But did you know that you can write pictures by choosing the right nouns – strong nouns

Take this short, practical course on how to upgrade your nouns from the author of Clear, Precise, Direct: Strategies for Writing (Oxford University Press, 2015). 

Most writers fall back on weak nouns when better options exist to communicate detailed images to the minds of readers. Upgrade your nouns today and plant images in the minds of readers. 

The objectives of this course are to help students understand why nouns matter to visual writing, distinguish between strong and weak nouns, and apply these principles in their own writing. No prerequisite knowledge or materials are required.
