Exercise for Lesson 11: Business Brochures
In this exercise, we’ll be practicing how to write content for business brochures. Because layout is going to be difficult to practice, we’ll instead be practicing primarily how to write good product descriptions as well as how to organize information. Detailed instructions are below.
In this exercise, you’ll be tasked with writing the brochure for a company that offers public seminars. Below is general information about each of the programs. Organize these into short paragraphs which are no longer than 250 words each. Also make sure to write a short abstract at the beginning describing the company. Also, look for photos which correspond well with this information. At the end of this document, an example is provided using similar parameters to guide you through this challenging exercise.
