Summary
All writing--whether it's an essay, a personal letter, or a detailed business report--is at its most memorable when it's built on the fundamental and critical skills that transform yur words from good to great. The first lectures provides the first key to more engaging and effective writing: understanding literary genres and the ways their unique styles can shape and inform your own voice. The focus then shifts to the art of rhetoric and the ways it can help you adapt youir writing to a variety of situations. The final part is a step-by-step guide through the writing process in its four major stages: researching, first draft, edting and rewriting
