How does Write Tight, Edit Tough® differ from all other writing guides?

  • It’s short (72 pages) and straightforward, with plenty of “key takeaways” to reinforce what you’ve learned.
  • It applies the four writing essentials and two editing essentials to any business document you write.
  • It links the essentials to familiar commands every computer user knows, to help you learn quickly.
  • It’s ideal for personal or group study.


Who gains?

  • Novice business writers
  • Experienced business writers, to hone their skills
  • Seasoned writers, to raise their expertise to a new level

Why is this important?

The writing abilities of U.S. employees have steadily declined over the past decade, according to several national surveys.*  WriteTight, EditTough® hopes to help reverse this trend by showing business writers how they can turn out lean, targeted and powerful copy for every project. Every day.  While on the job.
