Hi everyone, my name is Casey Ayers and welcome to my course Avoiding Common Writing Mistakes.

I am a project manager and strategic consultant with experience in mobile development, healthcare, consumer product development and more. I’m also the author of Pluralsight’s series of PMP and business analysis course series.

Between not only the ubiquity of email in corporate life, but also the increasing integration of social tools and custom digital solutions, more business than ever is conducted in a text format of some sort. The rise of remote teams, especially those that may include members spread across the globe, raises the stakes even higher. Some think writing is a dead art, but the truth couldn’t be more clear: writing has never been more critical to your career and business success as it is today.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Punctuation rules and guidelines that can help make your writing more clear
  • Tips for structuring sentences to best convey your message
  • How to convert these new skills into success for your organization and your career
By the end of this course, you’ll have a newly sharpened sense of how to communicate in writing, and improve your ability to use writing to inform and convince others.

The only prerequisite for this course is a desire to learn how more effective writing can help you better communicate and advance your career.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to improve your writing skills with Avoiding Common Writing Mistakes here at Pluralsight.
