CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Office of Community Outreach and the College of Liberal Arts at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi are launching a new non-credit course titled “Writing for Non-Profit Agencies” to begin Monday, Aug. 4, and run through Saturday, Oct. 5.

“This course will give participants a thorough understanding of the kinds of writing they would have to do in non-profit careers,” said Dr. Charles Etheridge, Associate Professor of English. “This course differs from others because it enables participants to do the writing themselves, and receive constructive criticism for their work from a professional.” 

The nine-week professional development course, which will be completed entirely through Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's Blackboard Learning System, will be taught by Etheridge. The course will cover a range of professional documents commonly written by non-profit professionals including internal communications, public information and announcements, newsletter and social writing posts, grant proposals and fundraising letters.

The cost for the course is $200, and all members of the community are invited to enroll. Participants will receive a certificate of completion from the University upon successful completion of the course for 45 hours of continuing education credit.
