Writing Creatively for Business
About the Writing Creative for Business Unit
The full Creative Business Writing unit allows MA Professional Writing students to explore and develop the research, writing and editing skills that go into producing various types of business writing, including factual and persuasive writing for business and non-profit organisations. Our students start to build a portfolio of high-quality business writing work that spans a number of different formats and contexts – from press releases to web copy – develop an understanding of career opportunities for business writers and consider the ways in which the field is changing.
Purpose/Aim of this Taster Session
In this session we'll be looking at the sort of things business writers do and that you might be doing. At the end of this introductory session, you should have an idea of the range of purposes underlying written business communications for not-for-profit organisations, and the wide variety of forms that such writing takes. You'll be trying your hand at a couple of short business writing assignments, and should gain a sense of how working in this area can be creatively challenging and fulfilling.
