Business Writing Virtual Courses Directory

While business writing is a subject best taught face to face, we offer a small number of web-based writing courses. These virtual classroom programs are designed for private groups and taught at a time convenient to you and us. 

Unlike lecture-based webinars, our writing courses are interactive. You can expect to chat, click, and discuss. Following best practices in adult learning, our distance learning workshops are taught segments lasting between 90-minute to two-hours. Programs requiring more time are sold as multi-segment courses.
