Professional Writing Center

Your staff can write better; Georgetown can help.

Writing is not just a college thing.  Every professional now writes emails, and most of us are also crafting memos, performance reviews, plans, proposals, PowerPoint slide decks, and even social media posts.  Meanwhile, tiny screens and tinier attention spans are changing how people read – and therefore how we need to write.

The Professional Writing Center is the external branch of the Georgetown Writing Center – a team of GU professors and graduate students that can be hired to bring the latest research-backed strategies to businesses and organizations around the United States that are looking to better workplace writing.  Workshops can be conducted in person or through videoconference, and can be tailored in size and subject to best fit your needs.

Common workshops include:

  • Strategic Writing
  • Effective Emails
  • Memos for Millennials
  • Writing for Social Media
  • Plans and Proposals
  • Creating PowerPoints that Pop

Past clients include:

  • Kellogg
  • Fannie Mae
  • GMMB
  • Share Our Strength
  • Venn Strategies
  • M Booth
