The act of writing is not sacred. However, knowing how to use the written word is empowering and Important. 

I meet a lot of people who are terrified to write. They view writing as a creative skill--one they don't have. They don't realize that by assuming they can't write, they cut themselves off from a fundamental form of self-expression.

Whether the document is an email, press release, college essay, history paper, celebratory toast, novel or book of non-fiction, good writing matters.

I’d like to be able to help people become more confidant about using words. My sense is that when a person feels better about how they are expressing themselves, they want to say more. That is certainly how it works with me.
