7 Reasons Why Writing Skills Are Important

  • 1

    According to a Geiser & Studley study, writing is a core skill required in high school and college classes ranging from language arts to the sciences. A student’s ability to write and, in particular, to compose an extended text, is one of the best predictors of success in course work during the first year of college.

  • 2

    Students who develop their writing skills in middle school and high school perform better in the classroom and on standardized tests, such as the SAT and ACT.

  • 3

    Writing is a valued skill in the workplace. Most professionals spend more than 50% of their time communicating in some fashion, such as through emails, written presentations, speeches, or memorandums.

  • 4

    Writing communicates your thought processes, professionalism, and credibility. Your ability to communicate effectively and clearly in writing is critical to your success in high school, college, and the workplace.

  • 5

    Employees who receive training on writing perform better on the job and are more loyal to an organization. Costly mistakes and missed opportunities decrease. Employee retention and productivity increase.

  • 6

    A highly trained workforce with an ability to communicate orally and in writing improves operational efficiency, creates a competitive advantage, and increases both financial and non-financial returns.

  • 7

    In today’s highly connected, technological world, writing continues to be an increasingly important lifelong skill, enabling individuals to communicate and build relationships with people around the world.
