VanWrite Clear Writing Classroom

Linda Vanderwold, America’s #1 Clear Writing Coach presents onsite.

 

The Department of Veterans Affairs brings the VanWrite Clear Writing System to Yountville.

You are invited to attend.

VanWrite is the most popular clear writing program in California State Government. With VanWrite, good writers become better writers; challenged writers become confident writers. This hands-on VanWrite Clear Writing program shows you how to:

  • Communicate much more concisely, which saves time and frustration between employees and their supervisors discussing re-writes;
  • Prepare shorter, more powerful documents that help readers obtain, retain, and access your message easily;
  • Increase your editing efficiency when you apply VanWrite techniques to immediately recognize strong and weak sentence elements.

Linda shows you how to plan an entire document before writing a single sentence, work quickly and clearly with visual thinking, and use new ways to grasp, develop, and share ideas. Next, she shows you how to expedite the editing process with Sentence Aerobics, an objective, measurable system that replaces the this-sounds-better editing approach. She shows you how to visually edit for Reader Comfort and clarity so readers obtain, retain, and access your message easily. You learn to apply objective rules Linda explains in her book Sentence Aerobics, Your GPS for Clear Business Writing. You learn how to objectively measure a document’s clarity with the VanWrite Sentence Aerobics Coach software.

You receive the VanWrite Toolbox that includes the hardcover book, Sentence Aerobics, Your GPS for Clear Business Writing, High Impact Thinking and Sentence Aerobics notebooks, downloadable templates, and a one-year VanWrite Sentence Aerobics Coach software subscription. The software protects your training investment because it coaches you every time you write!
