Write like the pros: Journalist George Orwell and crime author Agatha Christie
Writing can be fun and it seems we can’t get enough of it today as we text, tweet, update our Facebook statuses, and instagram away. You can take your writing to the next level with tailored courses that will keep your creative juices flowing. Keep a journal, write the story of your life, build your word power and vocabulary. Impress your clients with your mastery of the English language and become a stickler for good grammar. Writing is now acknowledged as the undisputed currency of communication for success in today’s world.
The programmes from the *WLT Masterclasses are all-year round and tailored for individuals or small groups. They cover basics like grammar, vocabulary, writing for social media, emails, keeping diaries and activity journals. They progress to writing for specific purposes like company profiles, product descriptions for e-commerce, magazines, newspapers, internet, memoirs, essays and reports.
Students will be able to draw from an onsite library crammed full of original manuscripts, writing, business and journalism books, magazines, newspapers and literary classics from Charles Dickens, George Orwell, Wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe, James Baldwin, Hunter S Thompson to Raymond Chandler and legendary New Yorker writer EB White. There is also a wide selection of annotated and activity journals to motivate you and whet your appetite for all forms of writing.
