Before Writing Comes Thinking

Before Writing Comes Thinking


As a professional writer, editor, university educator, and speaker, with more than 1,000 print and digital publications, I've recently launched an online program for enhancing your expository writing: learn2engage — With Confidence.

My mission is to help writers and would-be writers improve their thought and writing, master the logic of discussion, and strengthen their ability to deal with disagreement... which I have found to be the natural precursor to improved writing.

Many people are interested in improving their writing. But most of the time, what they really need first is to improve the way they organize their ideas, data, information, opinions and arguments.

At learn2engage, we have a better idea about teaching and coaching writing improvement. We approach writing and thinking as two sides of the same coin.

Interested in knowing more about the program? 

Please take a few minutes to watch the following video. Then contact me to schedule an appointment for a free 1/2-hour consult or to sit in on one of our online group sessions.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.    Phil Friedman
