Welcome, Training Professionals!

If you need training materials for writing and communication, you’ve come to the right place. You’ve probably found that teaching these so-called “soft skills” is actually fairly hard. That’s because most training materials are based on outdated grammar drills rather than the best practices of writing and communication instruction.

All of UpWrite Press’s products and services are based on the seven traits of effective writing. For an overview of these traits, see below, and for a closer look at any one trait, click on it. To see training materials based on these traits, peruse the bottom of the page, and to find free resources, see the right-hand column. You’ll discover that the traits make soft-skills training easy and effective.


UpWrite Press’s writing instruction is easy to learn because it is based on the seven traits of writing:

  1. Strong Ideas make writing effective.

  2. Logical Organization makes writing accessible.

  3. Effective Voice ensures that writing is well received.

  4. Clear Word Choice communicates an exact meaning.

  5. Smooth Sentences make writing easy to read.

  6. Correct Copy makes writing clear and authoritative.

  7. Polished Design gives writing a professional appearance.

The seven traits give you a quick system for deciding what’s working and what could work better in any writing. Each trait has specific strategies for improving it.
