Introduction to the Process of Writing

  • Online delivery
  • eClass

Learn the process to writ­ing — which many writ­ers fol­low nat­u­ral­ly. If you’re just get­ting start­ed as a writer, or if you always find it a strug­gle to pro­duce writ­ten work, whether it is a busi­ness report, a busi­ness let­ter, an essay, short sto­ry or blog, fol­low­ing the writ­ing process will help. This course will explain what each stage of the writ­ing process involves, and you’ll be offered some tips for each stage that will help if you’re feel­ing stuck!
This course has no prerequisites

Students from all educational backgrounds welcome. You can register for this course without applying and enrolling in a program.

Syn­chro­nous online learning, eClass

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details
