Plain Language

Plain language helps you get your message across. We write memos, letters and instructions because we have something important to communicate. Too often, that message is buried. The culprits: complicated language and poor presentation.

Plain language is not about dumbing it down. The objective is to eliminate ambiguity and eradicate obscurity from your written work, enhancing reader comprehension. To put that in plain language: The goal is to make your writing clear and effective.

A Clear Message, our 3-hour plain language workshop, is an introductory session for anyone who needs to communicate in writing. You will learn the basics of presenting information so it is most likely to be read and understood. Here's what participants tell us about this workshop:

"Excellent; informative and interesting. I'm excited to implement these tips and tools."

"It will positively affect my communication!"

"I look forward to incorporating some of these tips."

"Clear, informative, applicable."
