At the San Diego Writers Institute LLC, we help professionals improve their prose. We host weekend and week-long seminars focused on writing style, document writing, article writing and professional communications. All courses are designed and taught by Naveed Saleh, author of The Complete Guide to Article Writing (Writer's Digest Books) and The Writer’s Guide to Self-Editing (McFarland). Come learn to write better in America's Finest City!


Didactics at the San Diego Writers Institute LLC are split between lessons on style and lessons on writing (articles, documents, and professional communications). All lessons are taught by Naveed and based on his works The Complete Guide to Article Writing (F+W Media/Writer's Digest Books) and The Writer’s Guide to Self-Editing (McFarland).

Naveed is widely recognized for his revolutionary approach to writing instruction. Among other roles, he's a consultant with Writer's Digest and course developer and instructor at Writer's Digest University. His insights are both astute and easily understood. If you have a strong desire to learn how to write better, you should participate in the basic seminar series.

I had the great good fortune to work with Naveed at the American Medical Student Association. As contributing writer to the magazine, The New Physician, Naveed produced superb content that engaged and inspired our readers and our staff.

Smart, personable, thorough, and engaging are just a few qualities that will impress you about Naveed. I was so impressed with him when he led the entire AMSA staff in a writing workshop. To this day, I still use his tip sheets and words of wisdom about effective writing.
