Public Health Writing

Writing clear, powerful prose is an intellectual and emotional process that involves time, humility, courage, patience, optimism, and constant practice. Similar to excelling at a sport or playing beautiful music, becoming a better writer demands daily intentional engagement and constant attention to possibilities for improving process, style, and precision. With the appropriate support and resources, anyone who approaches their writing as a skill they practice daily can improve.
