Persuasive Writing for Professionals

We don’t usually think of our workplace writing as part of the persuasive writing tradition that includes literary essays, political speeches, and philosophical treatises. In this workshop, we will explore rhetorical strategies that we can incorporate into everyday writing practices to enhance our ability to engage an audience. Participants will learn about, discuss, and practice persuasive writing strategies that will contribute to more memorable and effective professional communications. Questions?
