Upcoming Workshops

INTRODUCTION TO PLAIN LANGUAGE 

What is Plain Language? What does the Plain Writing Act require of federal agencies? What about the private sector? Are there rules to follow or just best practices? This interactive workshop will cover the basic principles of clear communication tailored for a specific audience, purpose, and context. Participants will identify problems with and make revisions to brief examples. We will work our way through a "top 11" list of characteristics of un-plain writing. $40
