Event Details

Concise Writing Workshop in San Francisco

Learn to make every piece you write easier to read and
understand in this concise-writing workshop

Workshop Agenda

Read it and weep: More than half of all Americans have basic or below basic reading skills, according to the Department of Education’s latest adult literacy test.


That means they can sign forms, compare ticket prices for two events and look up shows in a TV guide. But they have trouble finding places on a map, calculating the cost of office supplies from a catalog and comparing viewpoints in two editorials.


How well are we reaching these folks with our messages?


In this concise-writing workshop, you’ll learn how to make every piece you write easier to read and understand. You’ll walk away with secrets you can use to reach more readers, measurably improve readability and sell concise writing to management.


Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Write for Readability: Reach readers, improve communication — even boost the bottom line — by making your messages more readable.

  • Cut Through the Clutter: Measure, monitor and manage readability with a cool (free!) tool.

  • Take the ‘Numb’ Out of Numbers: Make statistics understandable and interesting.

  • Start Making Sense: Get the gobbledygook, jargon and gibberish out of your copy.

  • Get a clutter-cutting workout with Wylie: Boost readability by up to 300% when you practice your new skills on your own work.
