C323 introduces you to the principles and techniques of
speechwriting, the art of writing speeches for delivery by a
client.  By composing several speeches for several different
clients, you will improve your skills at achieving oral style as
well as adapting messages to specific audiences and occasions.  The
speeches address clients’ needs for self-introduction, remediation,
education, motivation, and ceremonial speaking.  Several in-class
revision exercises are also assigned during the semester.
