Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I take this writing course, out of many others?

Many professional roles hinge on the ability to write effectively. While this course won't turn you into a seasoned journalist or award-winning copywriter in the course of a week, it will help you feel more confident, capable and effective whenever you sit down to write. The strategies we share were developed over the course of a decade of full-time editorial work, tested on hundreds of junior writers and colleagues, and shared with dozens of coaching clients.  If you do the work, you'll see a substantial bump in your overall writing speed.

Why is the course delivered via email?

We've seen a variety of seemingly efficient approaches -- SMS-based coaching, a single ZIP file, short videos, MP3s -- but our choice here comes down to simplicity in the context of your everyday activities.

So instead of asking you to memorize another login, or bother with downloading and saving files on your work devices, we send a daily email with all the training content, core concepts and homework. 

What will I get each day?

Each day, you'll get a single email with the day's focus, a results-oriented exercise with our ideal outcome, homework to complete before the next session, and recommended resources. Plan to block between 30 and 60 minutes each day to work on the course.

 

Is this for professional writers?

We created this course for busy people who write on a daily basis:

  • bloggers and freelancers whose income depends on efficient writing;
  • administrative professionals who write dozens to hundreds of emails and memos a day;
  • communications and social media managers who must frequently change creative gears during daily writing;
  • employees who want to spend less time agonizing over business communication.

How much does it cost?

Pricing is always a tough game, but we believe mastering the skill of writing faster is so important that we went with a pay-what-you-want (PWYW) model, anchored with real-life examples. 

What credentials do the course authors have to teach writing?

When it comes to writing, editing and asset creation, you can't miss with the powerhouse duo of Marissa and Rosemina. Between us, we have over 15,000 published articles -- which have gotten close to 100 million views -- and have also edited hundreds of thousands of articles. We've secured features and mentions on dozens of major print and Web publications, and we've helped clients supercharge their editorial strategy since 2007. 

 
Marissa is a symbol of motivation, talent and productivity. She’s an inspirational coach, using patience and insightful advice to help others develop and improve their skills, while at the same time an example of incredible efficiency, never failing to get the job done — and done right.
