Understanding Speech Writing

by Ron Kurtus (updated 17 March 2023)

Speech writing is the skill of communicating knowledge and expressing ideas in the written form of a speech, either for your own presentation or for another person. It requires being able to effectively organize and write down your thoughts in a way that can be effectively communicated verbally.

Writing speeches and organizing presentations are important skills used in the classroom, in many professions, including that of a professional speech writer.

The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your speech writing skills, to show how to apply speech writing in the business world, and to give tips on a speech writing career.
