“It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.”
– Ernest Hemingway
“It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly.”
-C. J. Cherryh
“Writing is thinking. To write well is to think clearly. That's why it's so hard."
“Writing and learning and thinking are the same process.”
“Good writing is clear thinking made visible.”
“If people cannot write well, they cannot think well, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.”
“You can’t think yourself out of a writing block; you have to write yourself out of a writer’s block.”
The Hurley Write Difference
Our courses are customized using your organization’s writing examples. Our proven process ensures that your team completes our workshop armed with the strategies they need to write scientific documents.
Ours is a "white-glove" service, which means that once you hire us, we do all the work—all your team has to do is show up on the appointed training days.
Our instructors have years of experience teaching writing—they’re not "talking heads" who’ve memorized a script.
We believe that everyone, regardless of profession, background, or education, can learn to write effective documents. And that they can learn and apply strategies that will help them write these documents in less time.
We understand that the professionals on your team are smart (if they weren’t, you wouldn’t have hired them!). We also understand that they’re great problem-solvers and critical thinkers, but that many of them dislike writing or see writing as secondary to their job. Because they dislike writing, they often procrastinate and/or don’t spend the time they should planning and writing.
The bottom line is that many professionals simply don’t have the tools they need to write effective documents. But the good news is that when professionals are taught strategies that teach them how to apply their problem-solving skills to the writing process, they have the tools to plan, write, and revise more effectively and efficiently.
