JustWrite

an online course in effective writing

If you find writing a chore, perhaps know what you want to say, but not how to say it, or feel you need to polish your writing skills, then JustWrite may be what you need.

Developed by the not-for-profit organisation Fahamu, JustWrite is an online course on effective writing, which can help individuals to build up effective writing skills over a period of a few weeks. It provides health workers with an opportunity to develop effective writing skills without absenting themselves from work, and benefit from extensive professional guidance. The course is ideal for anybody producing any substantial piece of writing, such as an advocacy document, paper for publication, or research report.

The course takes three intensive weeks and combines study material, stimulating interactive exercises, lively online discussion with your fellow participants and individual tuition. Study is broken down into daily hour-long slots, making the course suitable for those in full time employment.

A specially designed CDROM is provided containing all the study materials, including interactive exercises and assignments. It also contains sections on grammar, punctuation and stylistic issues - together with a reading list and guides to further study. You can be anywhere in the world to benefit from this course, you only need access to a computer and email.

The cost of the course is currently £300 sterling. For participants from developing countries who are without sponsorship, the fee will be negotiable. For further details on course dates and a registration pack, write to Hilary Issac, email: jw-info@fahamu.org

With bases in the UK and South Africa, Fahamu is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to support progressive social change in the south through using information and communication technologies. For further information, see online at http://www.fahamu.org.uk
