Engage Your Audience – Obliterate Passive Writing, a self-paced, animated course, introduces the concept of active versus passive voice and explores how this dynamic impacts the quality of writing.


Learn how to avoid it like the plague! Don’t write like a politician; embrace the active voice and imbue your writing with life. Your newly-engaged readers will thank you.
