Free webinar: Writing for policy impact

Event type Courses
Start date 4 September 2018 1 PM UTC

Good writing is critical for think tanks that want to change the world with their ideas. But it’s a skill that needs honing.

And good writing isn’t just about grammar and spelling. It’s about building arguments up logically and presenting messages clearly, while telling a compelling story that keeps your audience engaged.

This webinar will teach you how to convey your thinking clearly. It will also highlight the benefits of style guides and publication policies for think tanks keen to speak in one consistent and captivating voice.


This 60-minute webinar is free of charge.
