“Writing for NGOs”—The Process
In this practical course, you’ll be asked to submit material in advance: 2-3 examples of persuasive text. These excerpts may be written by anyone, in any context, from business, to government, to the culture sector. These examples will become the foundation for a fresh approach to your writing.
Why This Course is Unique
Many courses teach writing theory only; others focus solely on one written format. This course covers the top-line approach of writing for NGOs—from pitfalls to untapped opportunities.
