Workshop Description:

Clear and Concise: Guidelines for Style (one day)

Clear, concise style is the backbone of strong writing. It’s also the product of lots of cold, hard revision. This workshop presents a variety of stylistic techniques to help language do its job. We’ll look at how to boost flow, eliminate sloppy shifts and inconsistencies, link ideas using parallelism and subordination, tighten sentences, and trim wordiness. Through discussion, examples, and exercises, we’ll examine surefire methods for polishing any type of document.
