The Wordwell Writing Workshop helped me a lot. Tyson focuses on practices that are clear and easy to incorporate in day-to-day writing. That allowed me to start using them just after a couple of sessions. And I quickly saw the results: it was easier for me to put my thoughts on paper and my peers noticed my documents became clearer. Furthermore, the workshop helped me not only with my document writing but also with my verbal communication.
