Strategies for Writing Clear Sentences

Thursday, September 29
10:00 am – 11:15 am

Do you ever struggle when trying to write for a particular audience? Are you afraid of being too “wordy” or not including enough? This workshop will focus on how to write effective sentences for different audiences. Strategies discussed will include how to decide what to cut and what to keep, when to choose active voice, and how to avoid common sentence problems.
