Anybody whose paid or other work involves writing will need to adapt and apply their skills to different situations involving the written word. This unit aims to help those writers, or aspiring writers, to become more informed, skilful and versatile in their professional and personal practice. It explores forms, techniques and styles of writing that are relevant to workplaces and the wider community, as well as to academic study. These include organisational writing (eg, proposals and reports), reviewing (eg, book and film reviews) and writing for a general (non-expert) audience. You will learn the underlying principles and processes of effective communication that can be transferred across a range of writing genres. Through assessment tasks, you will gain practical experience to that end.
