Writing on the Job: Communicating Effectively in the Workplace with Martha Coven

Sign up Here for Zoom Link!

Writing is an essential skill in today’s workplace. From messaging platforms and social media to traditional forms of communication like memos and reports, we rely on words more than ever. Based on her popular writing classes as well as her decades of experience in the public and private sectors, this workshop with Martha Coven provides practical advice for how to write in professional settings and communicate effectively in the digital age.

About the series: 

In close collaboration with Princeton University Press, Princeton Writes, the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship, and other partners, this GradFUTURES Learning Cohort will help you hone writing (and other communication) skills in order to connect your ideas with audiences that need to hear them. We’ll cover how to keep your writing clear, interesting, and relevant.

The series will feature online presentations and in-person, hands-on workshops. You’ll hear from nationally-recognized voices in a series of Zoom Lunch & Learns with Princeton University Press authors like Christopher Paul Harris, Jelani Favors, Marybeth Gasman, Joseph C. Ewoodzie, and Tara Dawson-McGuinness, and you’ll also connect with people and resources that will help you move from theory to practice. In the Spring, you’ll have the chance to earn a badge in public writing—while producing public-facing work of your own in a supportive, mentored environment.
