Do you communicate in writing for your job? Scratch that -- the right question is when was the last day that you didn't use written communications for your job? At the very least, we write emails every day. We write memos, proposals, marketing materials, advertisements, and reports. Some of us even write blog posts, news releases and newsletter articles without a license.
Whatever you write, chances are you can do it better (that's certainly the truth in my case.) The good news is that there is no shortage of resources that we can use to improve our writing. The better news is that the Open Education Database has found a lot of them for us. 150 of them, in fact. I can vouch for a number of them, including:
- Writer's Digest
- Creative Commons
- Preditors and Editors
- Associated Press Style
- The Elements of Style
- Grammar Girl
And several others. The list is well worth perusing for the resources that will help you do your jobs better. Out of 150, there should be a few that you can put to use immediately.
