Say more with fewer words. It’s that simple. Brevity is much-needed in our fast-paced world if you want to get your message across quickly.

Well, there is more to it than that. In fact, it is quite the process to get your words whittled down to that perfect sentence or that brilliant paragraph.

Brevity. Getting Straight to the Point.

Course Outline

In this course you’ll go through examples, provided by the instructor and by you, if you so wish. Learn how to remove unnecessary words, substitute one word for many, and how to trim sentences down to their bare beauty.

Students love the participation level of this class and you may be surprised at how low a word count you can achieve.

Taking this course as a stand-alone is perfectly fine; however, you may want to take other courses too. We’ve created The Writers’ Toolbox Series, for those who want the full meal deal.

The Writers’ Toolbox includes the Brevity class as well as Written Voice, Writing for an Online Audience, Grammar Refresher, Punctuation Refresher and Editing 101. Taking it as a series saves you $51!
