Better Writing for a Distracted World

In a digitally-paced, data-driven world, where fractured attention spans and distraction are the order of the day…

Does good writing matter?

Actually, now more than ever.

Focused, engaging writing can cut through the distraction and the digital noise.  Clear, precise writing helps us think, solve problems, describe new discoveries, execute plans, and influence how the world sees us. This kind of focused writing can reduce cognitive overload, save time, and reduce workloads—as well as improve compliance and efficiency.

Clear, persuasive writing can help us educate and engage both professional and lay audiences, gain the confidence of internal and external readers, and win customers and contracts.

9 Ways That Better Writing Helps You And Your Company Profit


Reader-friendly education and training materials help audiences better understand your products and services.


Patient education materials written in plain language improve health literacy.

I had the opportunity to take Technical Report Writing (Working Words course) years ago when I was a Wyeth Pharmaceuticals employee. Looking back on my career (including 26 years in pharmaceutical manufacturing), this was the best course that I have ever taken up to now.

This course focused on technical report writing, but the skills learned positively impact all writing and other forms of communication. Based on my personal experience, I highly recommend Working Words, Inc.
