FAQs

What it’s like to work with Hurley Write, Inc., a certified women-owned small business.

If you have questions about what to expect from a Hurley Write course, we have answers.

Many picture a college lecture hall, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We use a workshop-style approach in our writing, review, and presentations courses to ensure a robust learning experience

What can I expect from a Hurley Write course, in terms of format and style?

We develop and teach customized onsite workshops for your team that are highly engaging and interactive.

We use micro-learning techniques, in-class exercises, and collaborative breakout sessions to ensure a robust learning experience. In other words, our goal is to ensure that your team completes a Hurley Write workshop armed with the tools they need to communicate clearly.

How long do the workshops last?

The writing workshops run from one to five days, depending on the level of complexity of the documents your team writes and how much practice they need. We also offer courses as a series (where they’re offered over time), in addition to offering webinars, online courses, and virtual training.

Our presentations courses are from one to two days.

Which course is right for my team?

We get this question a lot – and it depends on the type of documents your team writes. Since we customize the onsite workshop, all training will be relevant to your team and industry.

You can start by taking our assessment here, or schedule a call with one of our consultants at 877-24WRITE (249-7483).

What’s covered in the writing course?

We customize the course to focus on the types of documents your team writes and the skills they need to improve upon.

We often help organizations with business writing, technical writing, writing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), presentations, scientific writing, and more. For a full look at everything we offer, click through to our course catalog.

What’s covered in the presentations courses?

The presentations courses, like the writing courses, focus on your team’s needs and are customized to meet their needs. Whether they need help using data to tell a story, creating compelling PowerPoints, or presenting to large or small groups, we have a solution.

What’s the workload like?

Our workshops provide multiple opportunities for participants to apply the concepts to their own writing. Practice sessions range from two to five per day, depending on the workshop and type of documents discussed.

How much do the onsite courses cost?

Our courses are priced by number of participants, the number of days you require, and the content that will be covered each day.

Prices range from $430 to $670 per person per day.

Pricing includes:

  • Development costs to design a completely customized course based on your needs and goals
  • Analysis of your team’s documents by our experts to design the course around your specific goals
  • Development of breakout sessions that provide your team opportunities to apply these concepts
  • An experienced trainer who comes to your facility
  • A selection of training boosters to keep your team engaged after the initial session

How do Hurley Write’s courses differ from other writing courses?

Many writing courses focus on grammar principles, instead of teaching people how to write. While your team may need grammar help, in our experience, it’s not grammar that’s the issue but lack of a writing strategy that’s the real issue.

We’ve developed a proprietary process that teacher participants how to take their great problem-solving/thinking skills and apply them to the writing process. The outcome is a streamlined writing process and better-written documents.

We focus specifically on what your team needs to accomplish by teaching them the process behind good writing so that their writing will actually improve.

There are lots of companies out there that do what we do, but beware—their courses are typically generic and cover a lot of information that may not be relevant to your team.

Engagement in any training is vital but is especially important when it comes to writing. Public courses, which often have no limits in terms of enrollment, often don’t engage participants simply because there’s too many people to do so!

Our class sizes and hands-on coaching by a qualified instructor ensure that participants complete the course armed with the tools they need to plan, write, and revise more efficiently and effectively.

A recent participant in one of our courses said of his experience: “I really didn’t know what to expect. I heard ‘writing course’ and thought it might be really boring. But in fact, it was just the opposite! Very engaging, and super relevant to what my team needed to accomplish.”

What happens when the course ends? 

We don’t teach these courses so that your team ends up with a certificate to hang at their desk. To that end, we offer a variety of training boosters that will keep your team focused! They’re designed to inform, engage, and ensure that your team can continue to apply the concepts in a meaningful way.

Do you offer public courses?

Our courses are customized, designed specifically for your team, and offered at your facility. We don’t offer public courses because we’ve found that such courses, because they’re generic, typically don’t result in long-term learning and results.

Do you offer courses in any other formats, besides onsite?

Yes. While the customized onsite workshop is the most popular, we also offer customized webinars, virtual courses, seminars, and series. In addition, we have online courses in business writing, technical writing, writing for engineers, and scientific writing.

Which course format is right for my team?

You can choose from a variety of modalities including onsite, online, webinars, virtual classroom, and one-on-one coaching.

You can start by taking our assessment, here, or schedule a call with one of our consultants at 877-24WRITE (249-7483).

Do you offer any other services?

Yes. We provide coaching and editing services; we also help clients develop templates, style guides, and other types of reference documents.

Who is Hurley Write not a fit for? 

We work only with teams, not individuals.

If you’re interested in hiring a firm to write your documents for you, we’re probably not the best fit. We do, however, offer editing services.

If you think our courses + editing could benefit your team, but aren’t sure, schedule a call with one of our consultants at 877-24WRITE (249-7483) or take our assessment. Either way, we’ll help guide you to the best resource.

Still not sure if we’re a fit? 

Let’s find out for sure. Schedule a call with one of our consultants at 877-24WRITE (249-7483) or take our 1-minute assessment to figure out what course could help your team most.
