Email is a necessity for every business workplace but writing email well is not a skill that most people have been taught. When you’re at a desk and under time pressure to get work done, you usually don’t pause and review the rules for effective business writing. 

This 2-part email workshop will give you helpful tips so that you can compose your message content quickly, and then edit it into a clear, effective, and professional email for your reader. We’ll be discussing guidelines to organize your message for your reader’s benefit and work on examples in small groups and individually. Take a look at the email you write and receive: What factors make email hard to write? Hard to understand? Easy to follow and remember?    That’s where we’ll start!
