About This CourseBeginner

This course takes you from the writing fundamentals right through to the elite techniques practiced by the world’s top copywriters. 

From the very first lectures, you’ll be inspired to beat writer’s block and get something down on the page. You’ll also gain instant ideas for taking your first draft from ok to outstanding. You’ll discover a secret most writing and editing teachers won’t share with you: that good writing isn’t just about the writing. For the most part, good writing is about the thinking you do before you even sit down at your laptop or open your journal. 

You’ll learn expert tips and techniques for confidently honing your message down to its essentials, to keep your reader focused on what matters most to you. Tips that will save you time as a writer and get you better results. 

As the course progresses, you’ll learn what words to choose, how to turn turgid, lifeless sentences into attractive musical phrases that compel people to keep reading. 

In the second half of the course, you’ll discover how to apply recent findings of neuroscience to make your messages stick. In this part of the course, you’ll learn how to use imagery to paint unforgettable word-pictures in your reader’s mind. You’ll also discover the secret narrative structure underpinning the most persuasive stories.  

In the final section of the course, you’ll take your writing to a level only achieved by the world’s top copywriters and political speech writers. In this part of the course, you’ll learn how to apply the ancient art of rhetoric to any piece of writing to create rhythmic, emotionally resonant writing that’s totally unforgettable.
