Who doesn't want to enhance their prospects by writing much more stylishly than their peers and competitors?

Or to make a mark on the world by writing an outstanding book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—or even millions—of people?

After taking this course, that could be you.

It teaches you how to become not just an exceptional writer, but a masterful one. You'll know exactly how to get your writing noticed.

In Ninja Writing, you will discover how to embed quality at EVERY LAYER of your writing—whether it’s a blog, article, college essay, cover letter, corporate report or content marketing.

By the end, you’ll appreciate exactly how one piece of writing can be strikingly beautiful while another—on the same subject—bores you to tears.

"Up to this point, you've probably been bored with so many writing teachers who emphasize 'structure' through grammar tips and organization with a shot of word selection. But Shani covers that missing component: the artistry of writing. Writing can be just as fulfilling as painting, drawing or designing..." -- SANDY, UDEMY STUDENT 

"Even my degree did not teach me to write at these levels..." -- YAP WAN XIANG, UDEMY STUDENT

So, what exactly is a ninja writer?

It's someone who can take disjointed thoughts and ideas and create beautiful narratives out of them.

That is the hallmark of a distinguished writer: one who understands how to build points elegantly, wrap them into neatly arranged sections, and then thread the ideas through exquisitely organized paragraphs.

A ninja writer has mastery over the sentence layer of writing as well.

He or she instinctively understands how to tighten loose sentences, sharpen blurred ones, and bring rhythm to those that don't flow well.

Finally, ninja writers wield invincible power over words. They’re able to bring color, variety and freshness into their writing through their word choices, while slicing away any that have lost their edge or carry dead weight.

While a bad writer can make a mess even of the most sublime thinking, a ninja writer’s prose—blogs, essays, or any kind of business writing—always ends up looking spectacularly polished.

The fact is that great writing isn’t just a nice skill to have. It’s vital to conveying intelligence and professionalism to your bosses, clients, business partners, and blog or book readers.

Frankly, if you don't have this part of your life handled, you'll probably get fewer career chances, less shots at a promotion, and not as many eyeballs online.

And instinctively you know it.

If you’re a blogger, the world may miss out on your brilliant ideas, simply because your writing is too dull or unwieldy to take seriously. 

Remember that we live in the internet age, where a growing army of writers are competing to get noticed in an expanding sea of content.

This course will give you an edge.

It’ll quickly take your writing to a level of refinement that will mystify anybody who doesn’t know these elite techniques.

Here's a chance to take your writing to a level that, honestly, blows your competition out of the water.

"All I can say is WOW! After only a few lessons I went from struggling to write fewer than five hundred coherent words in two hours to easily churning out well written, well thought out content in less than 20 minutes." -- LISA THOMPSON, UDEMY STUDENT

Just the understanding that writing has four layers can make a huge difference to how effectively you communicate.

If you don't know anything about those layers yet, don’t fret.

Only a handful of writers do, and many are editors who work, as I have done, for top news organizations.

They spend all day bringing order and beauty to whatever article is presented to them.

They know how to focus on areas that bring structure to untidy prose, and a razor-sharp focus to disorderly ideas.

I know how rare this skill is because until recently I was an editor at The Wall Street Journal, where I taught many of the newspaper's journalists how to add style, flair and potency to their articles.

I've also written for The Economist, Financial Times, Bloomberg News and other highly regarded news institutions.

In Ninja Writing, I share what I’ve learned at those places under the mentorship of some of the best editors in the world.

Once you've learned their secrets, you too will be able to weave magic with your words.

You'll know how to create spellbinding narratives, breathe life to tired sentences, and dazzle readers with the words you choose.

You'll also write with more confidence.

"My writing has dramatically improved..." -- LYNN, UDEMY STUDENT

"Can’t wait to use all the tricks and techniques..." -- ADAPERIO, UDEMY STUDENT

"The Strunk and White guide for today's world... sure to be a classic..." -- DERRICK HOWELL, UDEMY STUDENT

One of the biggest problems novice writers have is not knowing if their writing is any good.

That won’t be a problem for you anymore.

You’ll know that it is.

Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery takes the mystery out of the writing process.

The tricks and tactics taught here will create a seismic shift in the quality of your writing, almost immediately.

You’ll express yourself as brilliantly as some of the slickest editors on the planet.

You’ll understand how to turn any kind of mediocre business writing into masterful prose.

The content here goes beyond what is taught in Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer, one of Udemy’s best-selling courses.

In Writing With Flair, I gave you a powerful framework for creating outstanding writing based on the three principles of simplicity, clarity and elegance.

The sweep of Ninja Writing: The Four Levels Of Writing Mastery is much broader.

It covers the whole territory of nonfiction writing, giving you a ground-up-and-top-down view of what’s needed to inject quality into EVERY PORE of your writing.

If Writing With Flair turned you into an exceptional writer, Ninja Writing will mould you further into an elite one.

Like my other courses, Ninja Writing steers clear of needlessly complicated jargon. You’ll simply get strategies to help you write with impeccable style and poise.

The course has been designed to help you reach the top of the learning curve in as little as a few days.

You’ll discover ways of looking at your writing that will elevate it to a plane most others don’t even know exists.

In Ninja Writing, I reveal the four levels of writing mastery you must work to perfect.

THE NARRATIVE LEVEL

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “This is such an amazing well structured, clear/concise course with immense value for anyone who needs to write articles and content of any nature.” A.P.

My name is Mark Morris. I’m an award-winning professional speechwriter with more than fifteen years of experience writing for senior politicians in the United Kingdom and internationally – including for two former Prime Ministers. During my career I’ve written thousands of speeches to audiences across Europe and North America.

I’ve written countless debates in the British Parliament. I’ve written articles for newspapers including The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, La Repubblica, El Pais, The Times and Die Welt. I’ve also written for magazines including Wired and Newsweek. I even had the honour of writing an historic and award-winning speech to a joint meeting of the United States Congress. In this course, I’ll give you the full benefit of my years of experience and expertise to set you on the path to writing success.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I really enjoyed the course. Each lesson was interesting and full of examples. Mark is a real specialist in his field and it's clear that he is passionate about his work. You are not only listening to empty words but learning from someone's experience - which for me is the best way. Even now, writing this review, I am trying to implement what I have learnt - which is a good proof of this course being a 5 stars one.” A.A.

This is not a technical course full of complex grammar. It focusses on the timeless principles that you can use to produce clear, powerful, persuasive writing.

The course starts by looking at what good writing is and at the evidence as to why writing well is so important. The course is then divided into three main sections: before you write (planning), while you write (writing), and after you write (editing).

Part One: Planning: In this section, I’ll show you what you need to do before you put pen to paper. We’ll ask the big questions you need to answer for everything you write:

  • What is your objective? If you don’t know what you want, you’re unlikely to get it.

  • Who is your reader? Only by understanding your reader and consciously writing for them can you achieve your objectives.

  • What is your voice? Who or what do your words represent? Yourself, your boss, your company? Only by having a clear and consistent voice can you achieve your objectives.

I’ll then show you how to plan and structure your work to lead your reader from where they are to where you want them to be.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “Loved this course! Mark gives you what you need to write in clear English. He goes directly to the point with his ideas, examples, and summaries. After doing this course, I started to see that my writing has improved. My sentences are shorter, cleaner, and more direct. I can't wait to continue to practice all learned in the course. Here's fresh news! Mark remastered the videos recently. Now, it's much more pleasant to watch and to listen. Go for it that you won't regret.” B.B.

Part Two: Writing: In this second section, I’ll guide you through the building blocks of writing: words, sentences, paragraphs and the whole piece. I’ll show you how to choose the right words and put them in the best order so you can achieve your objectives.

In this section you’ll learn techniques both ancient and modern that will turn your words into a powerful engine for achieving your goals. We’ll look at the logic and emotion of your words and at establishing credibility with your reader. I’ll also take you through many of the most common mistakes that people make in their writing, and how to avoid them.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I loved the way he explained things, simple yet profound. Easy to understand; he lives up to his words. Highly recommended. Thank you so much.” B

Part Three: Editing: In this section you’ll learn the vital art of editing. I’ll show you how to sharpen and smooth your first draft into something you can be truly proud of. I’ll show you how to test your words to see if they are clear, understandable and – most important - achieve your objectives.

  • 5 STAR REVIEW - “I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was fully comprehensive and packed with valuable tips to improve any type of writing. The tutor obviously had a lot of writing experience and didn’t hold back in sharing his knowledge. I liked the way he explained how to deal with writer’s block as it sounds very effective. I’ll definitely use it the next time my head feels empty.” S.M.

Finally, I’ll share some of the techniques I use to be a productive and successful writer. I’ll show you how you can enter a ‘State of Flow’, where excellent writing comes easily, and how you can avoid ever suffering from writer’s block.

In each section, I’ll take you step-by-step through the techniques, tricks and habits that can transform your writing.

If you want to promote your business, excel in your career, and feel proud of your writing, Better Business Writing is the course for you.

"Used the sample grant as a guide to write a grant proposal. Just found out last week that we won the the grant to the tune of $1.9 million dollars. I am so happy and excited. The sample grant proposals are awesome! I highly recommend this course!" - Sheila Savage

Course Summary

Learning how to write a grant is a great way to build your resume and learn valuable skills. Hiring a grant writer can cost anywhere between $35 to $150 an hour. Regardless if you work for an organization that needs funding or if you are looking to freelance, don't hire someone else when in just over two hours you can learn how to write an effective grant on your own.

The course is self-paced and can be taken from the comfort of your home, office, or on the go. The course consists of a series of short lectures and a quiz, focused on three main learning objectives;

  • Grant Writing Basics

  • Searching for Funding

            The course includes grant writing myths, how to focus on the funder, a simple eight step process for developing your proposal, where to look for funding, how to conduct research and how to keep informed about grant opportunities offered by both foundations and government programs.

Many nonprofits are worried about tax law changes affecting donations. To be competitive, you need to diversify and build your skills for generating revenue.

This course is designed for nonprofits that want to not only get better at writing successful proposals, but also get better at the process of researching and applying for foundation and government grants. The course is also for grant writers or freelance writers who want to offer their clients a more comprehensive approach to grant writing.

When you’re done with the course, you’ll have assembled one of the most powerful tools a nonprofit can have – a proposal boilerplate.

The boilerplate contains about 75% of the language you’ll need as you’re drafting proposals. Working on the boilerplate outside the pressure of a proposal deadline will result in language that is better-written, as well as more thoughtful and strategic. It will also set you up to be uber-efficient as you’re writing proposals in the future.

Throughout this course we'll be using real examples and real language, and each lesson includes a transcript, so you can kickstart your own boilerplate.

You’ll also be given strategies and tips for finding foundation and government grants, including:

  • Identifying five relevant local foundations
  • Gathering information about grants at the local, state, and federal level for you to start pursuing

Finally, we’ll be walking through key strategies for completing solid applications, including:

  • Letters of intent
  • The budget
  • Meeting a funder’s expectations

Each video session includes two downloads: a PDF of the slides in handout format, and a Word document transcript.

Understanding The Grant Life Cycle

When most grant writers think of the grant life cycle they think of three stages - pre-award, award, and post-award. However, the grant life cycle is a much more complex process through which grant seekers must develop the project idea, develop the proposal, implement the project, close out the award, disseminate the knowledge gathered, while building long-lasting relationships with partners and funders. In this course, "Grant Life Cycle", we are going to explore the major steps you need to take to go from idea to dissemination. We will address the value of having a solid, fundable idea, but more important, the significance of building strong relationships with internal and external collaborators and potential funders . We will teach you how to efficiently and effectively search for prospects and explore  the components of a compelling proposal. We will walk you through the steps of award negotiation, implementation and dissemination while providing valuable lessons on how to establish relationships which will last far beyond your current grant proposal. We hope you enjoy this course.

Welcome to Strategic Grant Planning & Management, the Stress Free Way

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE QUALITY IMPROVEMENT AND GRANT READINESS SECTIONS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN ANOTHER OF MY COURSES, THAT INCLUDES ALL THREE SECTIONS.

This unique course is based on a system I used and adapted for my employers and clients since 1989. It is unique in that it gives you proprietary grant management tools to:

  • win grants
  • receive grant awards
  • track every aspect of the proposal preparation and submission process
  • organize and keep current every piece of data that you might need to use in any proposal
  • plan funding for several years in advance
  • choose 
    • the right funder
    • for the right program
    • at the right time, and 
    • in the right sequence
  • report outcomes and show the funders that you were a good steward of their money

FOR EXAMPLE: If you've ever applied to Funder A for program expenses only to find out, too late, that Funder A was the ONLY ONE who would fund your construction or administration costs, while Funder B would gladly have funded your program expenses, you can appreciate how important it is to plan carefully, especially when future funding will be affected.

If you've ever wished you had a way to choose...

  • which funder
  • for which program
  • in which sequence
  • and when

THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!

This Strategic Planning course was developed for and adapted to many different types of NPOs over 25 years. You won't find this system anywhere else.

As a grant writer, nonprofit, or consultant, you will find this course gives you a complete solution for developing a system of grants management and strategic planning. It includes a sequence of data management and tracking forms, three funder-selection calculators, and a system to tie them all together into stress-free, grant planning and management system. You'll be so organized that you and your teammates will actually be able to take your lunch breaks. And, never again will you have to spend frantic hours in crisis-mode, trying to get your proposal submitted by the deadline.

**********

If you've ever run into delays getting data, budget, signatures, reviews or approvals with a fast approaching deadline...

Stress-Free Strategic Grant Planning and Readiness will provide you a truly stress-free planning and management system, including:

  • the forms and a database, to manage your entire grant funding system
  • funding opportunity calculators that you will use to weigh the fit between your programs' goals and each funder's goals and to help you choose the right funder, for the right program, at the right time, and in the right sequence.

This is especially valuable for organizations that have a large number of grant applications and multiple projects going on at any given time.

  • How to IMPLEMENT this proven proposal-writing management process
  • WHO belongs on your proposal-writing and management teams
  • What to include in your proposal writing and management POLICIES & PROCEDURES
  • How to manage each phase of your PROPOSAL-MANAGEMENT PROCESS
  • How to establish CRITERIA for choosing your funding sources
  • How to AVOID SUBMITTING MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS for the same RFP
  • How to DECIDE WHICH RFP to apply for, for each program or project
  • How to DETERMINE WHEN to apply for each grant you have identified
  • How the tools in the Strategic Planning Toolkit (included) are used to create a system that flows SMOOTHLY AND STRESS-FREE

And to wrap all of this together, the grant management system provides sample (editable) written procedures for smooth-flowing processes from the moment you begin to choose a funder to the moment you submit the proposal to the funder.

The system ensures that your grant applications will be error free, thoroughly reviewed, checked for accuracy and completeness and submitted error free and with essentially no stress or last minute crises (conditions most likely to cause errors.)

I've successfully implemented this system in small and large organizations. It's flexible enough to accommodate the many unique aspects of different nonprofits' management practices.

You'll learn how to use the strategic planning and management tools. These tools provide storage for your most current data, to grab and insert in your proposals and budgets. They also provide the tracking records needed to keep your proposal moving through the writing, review, editing, and submission stages. In addition you'll have three different methods of evaluating your programs to match RFAs and identify the best fits.

Funding, as you know, is not just the result of submitting a qualifying proposal, but of developing relationships and credibility.

When your organization is able to show a funder that you've covered all the essentials and are operating at the highest standards, you improve your credibility in the eyes of funders. Relationships, on the other hand, you'll have to build yourself. Begin with this system. 

With this system, you can organize your nonprofit in ways that will make your competition wonder what you've got that they don't have.

Not a bad spot to be in.

The world population is growing rapidly, but we all no that the poor and the marginalize in society are continuously suffering without much help from their own government, either some of the government don't care about them or simply their country is so poor that the basic necessity of live is even difficult to come by. The non government organisations play a very key role in helping the needy in our society and communities.

The increase in non profit start up in our society will go a long way to assist the vulnerable in society, of course the proper management of the non profit organisation is very central in helping the poor in the communities because although the work of the non governmental organizations are fantastic some of them simply use it as a tool to deceived society and a mass wealth for their individual personal interest at the expense of the poor.

Their work on embarking in advocacy and volunteerism is a called in the right direction to help the society, they should established evaluation and monitoring units in their company to ensure that the work is done in a professional way so that people will have confident in them and donate to a very good course.

There should be internal control measures in their business because the image of the company stand for a good course and it will be very bad for society to find out that they are just using their image just to deceived society.

Why the course?

There is an assumption that researchers or lecturers by the nature of their work can write persuasive research grant proposals to support research and also bring in the much needed research funds to the institution. While this may be the expectation, many times researchers or lecturers do not have the know-how of research grant proposal writing.

This course is therefore designed to provide upcoming researchers or lecturers a guided approach to research grant proposal writing by:

  • ensuring best fundable ideas are fronted;

  • appropriate funding opportunities are sought;

  • all components of a research grant application are submitted;

  • an appropriate budget is presented and

  • the organisation is presented in the best possible light.

The research grant writing course can also support a research administrator tasked with the responsibility of compiling and submitting a full set of research grant applications with all required attachments. The course can also benefit a student keen in pursuing a career in research grant proposal writing to join research teams and contribute to research grant proposal writing activities.

The course targets

Researchers

Lecturers

Research administrators

A student keen in pursuing a career in research grant writing

Level

Beginner to intermediate level

At the end of the course, you will be able to?

  • Complete that research grant application you have shelved for a while
