About This Seminar

Clear and effective writing is important for several reasons. The way we communicate in writing is a vital part of how we present ourselves and affects the way others perceive us. Our writing skills often influence our success or failure in education and careers. Most importantly, the written word is a means by which we can glorify God and share our faith in Christ. Do you desire to help your child improve his skill in writing clearly and effectively? Join me [Eileen Berry] as I present strategies for helping your child enhance his writing skills in a variety of composition opportunities.
