Improve your communication in the workplace, regardless of where you are on your career continuum.
Unlike any other business writing training, we use the unique lessons of fiction to help you tell your corporate story, prepare your marketing materials, or write proposals, fundraising appeals, or inner-office emails. During this six-week course we’ll help you take your writing from liability to asset.
Class sessions will include writing exercises, discussion, and individual attention. Students will be expected to hand in weekly homework assignments that typically require between one and two hours of work. Students are also encouraged to identify a work project to use during the class sessions.
Who should attend?
This class is open to everyone who has to write at work. Entry level employees as well as senior managers will benefit from learning how to write more clearly and persuasively.

Beth Nyland is a communications consultant and founder of Spencer Grace LLC. Her employer/client list includes Accenture, Lands’ End, Motorola, PepsiCo Inc., Sears, Roebuck and Co., and Unilever. As a creative business communicator, Beth firmly believes “creative business writing” need not be an oxymoron. Her experience includes both agency and corporate roles, all focused on raising the quality of internal and external communications. Her writing style features everyday words, active verbs, clear examples, and even a sense of humor—-the same approach she recommends to her students and clients at all organizational and experience levels. Her goal is to put forth writing that reaches and involves people so they believe, understand, and do what’s needed for an organization to succeed. In addition to her work with StoryStudio Chicago, Beth is a wife, mother of six, poet, humorist, memoirist, and blogger.
