Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesTechniques for writing correctly

Do you have something to say? In this course we help you write it!

This course aims to empower you to become a critical reader and a skilled writer. Each writer must make his own way, and in order to do this, we will show you techniques and resources that will help you find ideas and overcome the fear of a blank sheet of paper.
During the 15 classes in the course, we will analyze different types of text (literary, academic, professional, audiovisual, advertising, informative, etc.); we will read, write and rewrite texts, many texts, with very varied purposes (narrative, descriptive, argumentative, analytical, persuasive, instructional, etc.); we will evaluate them and improve them.

We will see how to plan writing and how to write meaningful texts. We will review the three fundamental principles of writing: conciseness, clarity and simplicity. Thanks to the training in the classes, collaborative writing, and peer review with tutors of the Nebrija Writing Center, you will get your texts to be original, readable and know how to position yourself as an author. During the course, you will create a portfolio of written texts that will allow you to reflect on your progress as a writer because we want you to enjoy writing, be it the story for the university's literary contest or the master's final project.
