See how closely drafting and researching intertwine

As you progress through the course and polish your writing skills, you’ll realise how closely related drafting and researching are.

With this understanding, you’ll see how rewarding and productive it can be to write before you feel completely ready.

Throughout the course, you’ll be guided by Patrick Barry, author and professor at The University of Michigan. You’ll also receive advice from a diverse set of writers to equip you with the skills to confidently tackle drafting.
