Learn a step-by-step method for writing clear, compelling articles in defense of freedom (and for getting published in outlets such as The Objective Standard).
If you want to advance freedom with the written word, this course is for you. It presents a step-by-step method for identifying the key aspects of a given subject pertaining to liberty, boiling them down to essentials, and presenting them in clear, powerful prose.
You will learn:
- How to organize and essentialize your thoughts
- How to choose a topic and formulate a theme
- How to create a simple, useful outline
- How to concretize abstract ideas
- How to build on readers’ existing knowledge and help them achieve a higher level of understanding.
The principles and practices taught in this course—many of them inspired by such thinkers as Ayn Rand, Leonard Peikoff, William Zinser, and David Stove—have been used by writers and editors at The Objective Standard for eighteen years. When you learn these methods and put them to work, your writing will improve by orders of magnitude.
Here’s what participants say about the course:
“I wish I could have taken this course decades ago. I absolutely recommend it to anyone interested in writing.” —Mike
“It was just a month ago that I decided to give writing a shot, see if its something I’d be interested to pursue. I never thought that a month later I would wind up with a published article! I’m so grateful to you for helping me through the editing process, I learned so much.” —Maggie
“I definitely recommend the course to anyone who publishes (or wants to publish) their writing; it’s super helpful and my writing will be better for it.” —Angel
Freedom is constantly under attack. And few writers defend it well. You can be one of the few. Take this course and join the fray. When you can write with clarity and impact, you can make a big difference.
