Research shows that strong writers go further in the workplace. They climb because they communicate with precision and punch. The simple fact is: fewer and fewer college graduates use words well. And employers are crying out for good writers for a wide range of positions, from marketing to management to content writing. There's never been a better time to learn how to use your words. We welcome you to sign up for Creative Writing classes at UWG and see how far your words can take you.
