Writing Better


Developing Natural Communicators

Written Skills

In a digital age, it’s tempting to think that good writing no longer matters. In an age where many of us spend a good portion of our day texting and on social media, who really cares if you can write well…right?
Wrong. Good writing matters more than ever, for three reasons. First, the less time you spend re-writing documents, the more time you can devote to your actual job. Second, focusing more time on your core deliverables helps your bottom line. Finally, good writing – precisely because it’s such a scarce commodity – enhances your reputation. Being a skilled writer will make you stand out to internal and external stakeholders alike.
At Clearwater, our team of written skills experts ensures that you learn how to write in a way that brings about desired results. Participants develop professional writing skills, learn what constitutes ‘good business English’, and master the construction of clear, concise and coherent written communications.  They also leave with added confidence of their writing ability.
We offer a three-level writing curriculum:


  • Plain English
  • Active voice
  • Strategies for reducing wordiness
  • Short sentences and readability
  • Paragraph structure and topic sentences
  • Document structure and the inverted pyramid


  • Audience analysis
