A Welcome from Erin Lebacqz,
Creator of the HVW Program & Curriculum


Welcome and thanks for taking time to learn more about High-Value Writing. Ready to build writing confidence and feel good—or even better—about your business writing? High-Value Writing can get you there.


I created the High-Value Writing program to help workplace writers of all levels meet their professional and personal goals through clear, confident writing.


Whether you’ve learned a lot about writing in the past, or a little, you can write with intention and feel proud of your writing.

Did you know there isn’t one “right” way to write?


Instead, what’s “right” depends on the situation. We can all learn to make the best writing decisions for different situations by thinking about our reader and our goal, and by leveling up our writing with some targeted strategies.

The High-Value Writing curriculum and program came out of discussions with workplace writers just like you. After working with thousands of workplace and academic writers around the world, I’ve learned a lot about the challenges of writing in real-world situations. 


You can start writing with more value and purpose today by checking out one of my YouTube videos or
getting a copy of the High-Value Writing book. Glad to meet you! Let’s get to work.
