Writing Briefing Notes is a one-day course providing participants with current models for PSC briefing notes, as well as the writing strategies that allow a reader to answer questions, understand the background of an issue and act on recommendations or decisions. Participants will learn to analyze the needs of the audience and structure the briefing notes to meet those needs.

Participants must successfully complete Principles of Plain Language before registering for any other course in the PSC Writing Program.
