Importance of
writing skills

There are two ways to communicate


Speaking
Writing
Verbal communication is aided by nonverbal cues, like hand movement
and facial expressions
Writing has to be much clearer than spoken language because it lacks
these assisting cues.
Objective, factually based writing is stronger and more persuasive
than writing that relies on opinion and hearsay
Great care is required to ensure that your message s accurately
interpreted by its audience.
Good writing is composed of many ideas, all connected by a single
purpose.
