VanWrite Curriculum

What is this?

Linda Vanderwold invented a clear writing system that you and your staff can learn quickly and easily. This powerful system saves everyone time by making the endless rewrite cycle obsolete. This simple system refines a business skill that busts “writers block”, and targets writing that causes readers to struggle. With the VanWrite Clear Writing system, good writers become better writers, and challenged writers become confident writers.

Who is this for?

The Internet made everyone a writer. VanWrite benefits people at every organizational level – executives, managers, supervisors, office workers, and technical workers. People in small and large businesses, and government organizations rave about the system. The clear writing system is effective for all writers including technical and non-terchnical writers, engineers, lawyers, medical, and auditors to mention a few.

Learning Objectives

When participants grasp VanWrite,  they:

  • communicate much more concisely, which saves time and frustration between employees and their leaders discussing re-writes;
  • prepare shorter, more powerful documents that help readers easily Obtain, Retain, and Access the writer’s message;
