Dear language purists

Dear language purists, Language changes. Deal with it. I got mansplained recently, in the most belittling of ways which quickly devolved to mockery and insults when I called him out on it. (In truth, I hurled the first insult.) He was a PhD student from the local...

Took Shelly's course as a part my Master's program and I LOVE the simplistic approach as a first-time learner. Simple, to the point, weekly schedules of forum discussions and assignments which were meaningful and reasonable in terms of time commitment. Definitely recommend you to consider her courses if you are looking for writing training!

Shelly is a well education person who makes learning fun and easily. She provides practical skills that you can be easily used and you will come away with a lot of GOOD STUFF! I walked away with feeling more confident about being more down to earth and relaxed in my speech. It has sped up my reply time and I am more comfortable about where to place humour and let my personality shine through. Don't miss an opportunity to be introduced to PLAIN ENGLISH. We all need a dose of it!

Shelly is an extremely talented and awesome woman. She is down to earth and is able to connect with people from all different backgrounds. I really enjoyed our technical writing sessions with her, and could not recommend her enough to people who want to upskill their communication. Thanks Shelly, you rock!

The written word is just as much a form of communication as the spoken word… all too often we forget this. When searching for a business writing course I had two criteria 1) know your stuff 2) be memorable – Shelly talks big… then she delivers. Laughter and learning all in one, who thought it possible! Come with an open mind, be prepared to challenge what you know, and leave understanding that we write for the reader.
