Plain Language Workshop, Part 2

On Saturday, April 13, Nicole Watkins-Campbell will be giving a follow-up plain language workshop.

Plain Language for Editors and Writers is a full-day (10am–4pm), hands-on workshop to help you make your clients’ writing clearer and more readable. The benefit to your work? Broader editorial services for clients and writing tailored to stakeholders. Together, we will assess the audience, edit to meet their needs, and estimate the document’s success at meeting those needs.

This workshop will focus on the editing skills that make writing clearer and more readable. It builds on a previous half-day workshop held in January, with the focus this time on editing. The January workshop is not a prerequisite to this one.

Depending upon the needs of the group, we will very briefly cover plain language theory, and then jump into editing.

If you use a laptop, please bring it. We will work in groups on this project.

The cost of the workshop (lunch included) will be $80 for members, $90 for non-members.
