Do you dream of leaving your office job and making your mark on the world by writing a wildly popular book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—if not millions—of people?

Do you wish you were able to write business reports, sales emails, website copy, cover letters or college essays with supreme confidence?

Imagine, then, what it would be like if you could write with the style and flair of journalists on top newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.

Welcome to the brand new second edition of Secret Sauce Of Great Writing, a program that will show you how it's possible to upgrade your business writing, blog writing and copywriting skills to that level extremely fast. 

The course is taught by Shani Raja, author of the bestselling Udemy course Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer and a former Wall Street Journal senior editor and writing coach, as well as an ex-contributor to The Economist, the FT, Dow Jones and Bloomberg News

In this course, Shani will introduce you to the fundamental four ingredients of exceptional writing:

  1. Simplicity

  2. Clarity

  3. Elegance

  4. Evocativeness

In as little as an hour, you'll know exactly how to apply this "secret sauce" to your own writing—putting you way ahead of other writers in your profession or industry.

"Outstanding course from the get go..." — Rudyard von, Udemy student

"A genuine recipe to produce attention-grabbing writing..."  Hassan Masood, Udemy student

"Revolutionary..." — Marie-Rose Davis, Udemy student

"Impressive..." — Cornelia M. Lorenzo, Udemy student

"Priceless..."  — Alimaa Batchuluun, Udemy student

The secret sauce

The first three ingredients in the secret sauce—simplicity, clarity and elegance—respectively make your writing punchy, crisp and graceful.

Evocativeness is the fourth quality that makes your prose stimulating.

When you put those four ingredients together in a piece of writing, it will become truly outstanding. 

In fact, it's the exact formula Shani has used for many years to edit articles devoured regularly by millions of people worldwide.

Perhaps you've always felt your writing was too weak to get noticed or make an impact. Maybe you've struggled to figure out how to improve it, or even to know where to begin.

Don't worry.

This course will reveal the writing tactics of world-class editors in a well structured and easy-to-follow format.

You'll find that as soon as you incorporate those four ingredients (simplicity, clarity, elegance and evocativeness) into your writing, you'll see a seismic shift in the impact of your words and sentences.

"Goes beyond the bland lessons of early education by adding flavor and life to your prose..." — Billy Williams, Udemy student

"Excellent advice and interaction kept me glued to this course..." — John Faherty, Udemy student

"Really gives you the ability to see how your writing could improve..." — Cameron M. Kreider, Udemy student

"Shattered my opinion about good writing..." — Bilal Ahmad,  Udemy student

"Thank you for enlightening us..." — Tanpreet Kaur Narula, Udemy student

"Makes you feel comfortable and excited about writing..." — Travis Fry, Udemy student

"Helped me to see exactly what I needed..." — Shalecia Tatiana Wallace, Udemy student 

How many job interviews might you have lost because your cover letters and resume didn't hit home?

How many customers might you have turned off because the words on your website were too dull and uninspiring to read?

How many books or blog posts have you quit writing, or put off, because you couldn't figure out why your sentences and words lacked the power to captivate a reader?

You'll find the answers to such questions in this course, your first glimpse into the wondrous world of elite writing.

Not tips, but a writing system

This entry-level writing course doesn't focus on the technical aspects of writing, such as grammar rules.

Rather, it reveals the powerful key principles that will enable you quickly to design more stylish prose.

Nor will you get a bunch of fragmented writing "tips" you could pick up anywhere on the internet.

This is an all-encompassing writing system that will change forever the way you think about and approach the craft.

Your essays, cover letters, press releases, marketing copy and sales emails—not to mention books and blog posts—will never look the same again. 

"Most great teachers can't write, and most great writers can't teach. Shani Raja is one of the few who excels at both. I managed dozens of reporters and editors during my 12-year career at Bloomberg News. Now he's the person I go to when I want help with my writing." NICOLAS JOHNSON, FORMER BLOOMBERG AND GLOBE AND MAIL EDITOR.

"As a young reporter my prose might have been robotic and jargon-laden if not for Shani's watchful eye and attention to the elusive human interest behind ostensibly technical stories. Beyond the standard (yet crucial) reporting skills—like accuracy, clarity and integrity—I also learned refinement, how to withstand impulses toward glibness and cynicism that can naturally set in when oft revisiting the same beat. Shani will teach you how to write well, and with grace." HAWA ALLAN, JOURNALIST AND FICTION WRITER.

Endings are important. Endings to stories determine whether or not a reader will be satisfied, thrilled, delighted or emotional as your story ends or if they will feel cheated or irritated after investing time and money on your work.

In this short course I have focused on six types of endings to fictional stories. Some of these six categories have sub categories. Being aware of all the ways a story can end is empowering for writers and can help when the ending isn't clear.

You will discover how to give your fiction the ending it deserves by considering those options available to you. Knowledge of the potential endings you could use will ensure that you are able to end a piece of work with the wow factor you injected into the beginning. Understanding the impact of different endings will help you to develop and end to a story that will satisfy your readers and leave them hungry for your next episode, story or book.

Planning one or more endings for a story will develop your writing skills - a lot of the time wrestling with ideas and brainstorming are what improve your range.

There are six writing exercises that will give you practice and further develop your skills. Carrying out practical activities goes a long way to ensure retention of information.

By considering the ending of a story as much as you consider the beginning you will be set to produce dazzling and memorable written work.
