Working at a computer

I gained a lot of self confidence as a writer, and I gained patience when it comes to my writing. The coursework has helped me to see that I don't have to have my work perfect on the first try, and it's okay that it is not perfect.

My favorite part of the writing certificate was that it satisfied my need for a creative outlet that isn't fulfilled in many of the other courses at the University. I loved that it pushed me to write creatively and also helped hone my craft.

The writing certificate helped make me a better writer, and now I'm passing that knowledge on to non-traditional students in the Seattle area to help them in their college classes.

In my position [as Marketing Coordinator], I'm doing a huge amount of writing-- whether it's for social media posts, internal communication (company newsletter, event coordination, etc), or while ghostwriting the CEO's weekly blog, I am writing every single day. The writing certificate has helped me with writing creatively yet concisely and has helped me develop my editing skills as well.

[Having earned the certificate in writing] definitely helps me with organization of material and direction as I speak with clients and developers. It has also assisted with my generation of content for our website, our blog, and our social media posts.
