When you choose a Wylie Communications writing class, you’ll:
1. Walk away with proven-in-the-lab best practices.
No doubt about it: Our corporate communication trainer, Ann Wylie is a nerd. While you’re out having fun on a Friday night, Ann’s more likely to be cuddled up with a warm study.
All of those Friday nights and all of those studies have resulted in a system of data-driven techniques that get readers to:
- Pay attention to your message
- Understand it
- Remember it
- Act on it
How do we know our system works? It’s the same approach Ann’s used to earn more than 60 communication awards, including two IABC Gold Quills — the Pulitzer Prizes of business communications.
“Comprehensive learning experience packed with relevant facts and information to back up best practices.”
– Adam Jacobs, associate account executive, CMD

“This is the best writing class I’ve attended in my 25-year PR career.”
— Mark Alden, PR manager, National Semiconductor
3. Master the techniques you learn in class.
In the crunch of writing headlines and meeting deadlines, it sometimes seems as if there’s not enough time to pause and consider how you’re doing.
But our Master Classes include workshops. In these practice sessions, you’ll get a great opportunity for reflection and improvement.
Bring your laptop and a story to work on. You’ll learn new techniques, practice them, get feedback from Ann and the class, edit and rewrite, and leave with a totally rewritten piece. That’s how we put the Master in Master Class.
“I cannot believe how much I changed and improved one piece in this session. I also enjoyed the ability to hear more from the other professionals in the room. Very interactive, which I loved.”
— Megan McCarl, public relations associate, Lambert, Edwards & Associates
