Clearing the Fog: Plain Language Writing

Lunch & Learn with Frances Peck

November 26th, 2019

Studies repeatedly show what professional communicators have known for decades: the most concise, precise, credible, and intelligent-sounding documents are the ones written in plain language.

Plain language is not about dumbing down content. On the contrary, plain language is a way of presenting complex material—legal, judicial, financial, scientific, technical—so that it’s easier for its intended audience to understand, use, remember, and comply with.
This presentation explores why plain language matters, what it looks like, and how to get it.
