Plain Language

If you know me, you know stuff like this makes my nerd heart beat faster: the CDC is hosting a webinar that’s perfect for those of you trying to hone your writing skills, particularly for the purpose of creating patient information and public awareness materials. Plain Language: Writing Skills for Clear Communication (PDF) will take place March 31st from 2-3pm ET.

From the site:

Would you like to learn more about clear communication and using plain language in your writing? Would you benefit from learning about developing clear, concise messages and about editing content to reduce verbal clutter? Whether you’ve read 10 or 10,000 documents prepared by committees, work groups, or large organizations, you have probably read through material that was confusing, overlong, and loaded with jargon. If you want to improve your ability to provide information to a target audience that is easy to understand and useful to the reader, consider participating in our next webinar.
