Altitude - Clear Writing

Please note that this event will only be offered in English

The most powerful language is also the simplest. When each word has a clear meaning and purpose, readers can move easily through a text and focus on its message. Unfortunately, much writing today is needlessly bureaucratic and difficult to read. The culprits are many:

·        Language that serves the writer instead of the reader

·        Organization that buries the important messages

·        Wordiness that stifles clarity
