Writing is an essential job and life skill. Not only does it help us communicate, but it can also help us to organize our thoughts and solve problems. With that in mind, CultureLink is launching a new series of seminars aimed at improving writing skills. Participants will be trained to write in a range of styles and forms, from cover letters to essays and short stories.
