Project Description

Streamlined Writing Project

Strategy 6: Presentation in the Writing Masterclass Series


This course includes six techniques to help you activate and streamline written pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and possibly poetry through effective use of presentation. The course will make your writing stand out right away!

This course includes six concrete and actionable techniques for improving your presentation in larger written works. Put each one into practice as you create a new writing piece or as you revise a newer or older already-written piece. Once you have completed the piece, please post the new piece or a before and after version of your revised piece so we can see your wonderful changes, then consider the next part of the series, "Writing Attitudes." Or, go through all eight courses in the series and then post your final copy or before and after copies to the "Writing Habits" course.
