Secrets of Successful Technical Writing
An intensive one-day writing clinic!
of Successful Technical Writing is an intensive one-day writing clinic
that will help you master the skills you need to handle any technical
writing project with ease and confidence. Like our two-day Business Writing

that guide you through various "real world" technical writing challenges.
You'll discover how to use clustering, ranking, structuring and other

for banishing wordiness and excessive technical jargon from your writing.

trap technical writers. The take-home materials alone are worth the cost

status reports, sales reports, proposals, marketing plans, summaries,
RFPs/PSRs and more.
