About this course
This second course in the “Good With Words: Writing and Editing” series will help you become an effective information architect with both sentences and paragraphs. You’ll learn that the traditional advice to “show, don’t tell” is incomplete, and that experienced writers actually switch between showing and telling.
You will also learn more about the menu of time management techniques introduced in the first year of the series, including “deep work,” “study time,” and “the principle of the animal farm.” And, as with the other three courses in this series, you will have access to a wide range of books and other resources that you can use even after completing the course. This includes:
- (1) readings and exercises provided to students who have taken the full-time version of this course at the University of Michigan and Chicago;
- (2) two electronic libraries of excellent letters from a variety of journalists, scholars, writers, poets, historians, and business people;
- (3) Monthly email of good deals.
