CRANFORD — While you may have outstanding skills in your selected field of expertise, it is essential that you develop a most significant skill in writing to distinguish yourself from those with otherwise similar qualifications. Union County College will offer an eight-week professional development course in “Effective Writing” this summer that assists people in the workplace, the unemployed, recent college graduates and current students, and even prospective book writers with grammatical and stylistic writing skills.
“Effective Writing” will cover such topics as analyzing and targeting the intended audience, word usage and eliminating unnecessary words, sentence structure, and paragraph development, among other topics. While classes are structured, the flexibility is there to enable every student to have his/her writing concerns addressed appropriately. The course will feature in-class and take-home writing assignments, practical exercises and worksheets, and extensive discussion of how to adapt one’s writing to meet employment and special-interest needs. Students will work from a textbook, workbook, and class notes.
The course will be offered on Wednesdays, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. from June 8 through July 27 at the College’s Cranford Campus. To register or for further information, call the college’s Office of Economic Development and Continuing Education at 1-908-709-7600 or go to www.ucc.edu.
