Persuasive writing isn’t fancy jargon for “marketing”–it’s actually its own beast. And believe it or not, you write persuasively every day without even realizing it. Like when you want to cash in your vacation days or need to convince your landlord to waive those steep late fees. And if you’re responsible for managing a group of employees, knowing how to write persuasively is key. How else do you expect to keep your workers on track with company goals?

Simply put, you don’t have to be a writer to show interest in learning persuasive writing techniques.

Led by University of Cambridge writing tutor Claire Lynch, this course guides you through the top principles that can be applied to most types of non-fiction writing. That includes drafts of emails, company speeches, reports, advertising, blogs, and more.

Across 60 lectures, Lynch will help you develop your voice and identify the writing techniques that will enhance your prose. She’ll also teach you how to say more while writing less, and leverage rhetorical techniques to engage your audience. The course even includes a few quizzes for you to take to ensure your understanding.
