Expert tips and strategies to enhance your writing at work
February 2022 Issue

We wanted to bring it back to the basics this month and dive deep into what business writing really is. Like many things in life, it's not always as simple as it seems. But given how crucial strong writing skills are to your long-term success, it's imperative to get it right.

In the spirit of our deep dive, we've answered an important question we often receive: Is business writing the same as technical writing? And before clicking, how would you answer that?

If you aren't sure, that makes sense! How could you define a term if you've never actually been taught what it is? Most of us find ourselves having to write professionally but without having experienced the same focus on business writing foundations in school that we learned for other types of writing.

Fortunately, we've written many articles this month—linked below—that will help you develop a strong business writing foundation. And if you want to take your writing even further, we can help with that too.
