Welcome to this online course, facilitated by the Duke Environmental Leadership Program! Writing in environmental fields encompasses many genres, from policy memos to manuals, blog posts to interpretive signs. Over the next six weeks, this course will allow you to refine and reflect on your writing process. For some, the course may serve as a tune-up; for others, a significant remodeling. Through six modules, on-line discussion, and a series of writing assignments, we will examine the most important aspects of any piece of professional writing: organization, use of evidence, clarity and cohesion, and incorporating feedback during the revision process. The goal is for your writing to become more powerful as a result of this work.
Course Dates: June 2 – July 11, 2014
(with weekly WebEx meetings Tuesdays 8PM-9PM EST)
