QAHN's Communication Matters Conferences Series presents:
"Let’s Be Clear: How to write about anything, with purpose and effect," with Melanie Cutting.

Whether it is a term paper, a scholarly essay, a piece of journalism or a technical report you have in mind, the basic structure of good expository writing remains the same: it should contain a main idea, supporting details, and a conclusion. Learning to use words with greater confidence and skill will enable you to 1) attract and hold your readers’ attention and 2) present your ideas more clearly and forcefully. In collaboration with Townshippers’ Association, QAHN is pleased to present this event as part of our 2019 Communication Matters series.

The proliferation of digital media has created an unprecedented opportunity for writers to share their work with diverse audiences across a wide range of platforms. In this free writing workshop participants examine the fundamental components of six important types of expository writing: the narrative essay, the descriptive essay, the expository essay, the persuasive essay, journalistic writing and criticism. Participants will then get to work selecting topics and following steps to create original and effective compositions of their own.

Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre, 9 Speid, Lennoxville, Qc.
Free admission. RSVP: (819) 566-5717.
