About our Plain English workshop

The days of writing in business-speak, Civil Service-ese and ‘posh’ English are gone.

Today, writing is all about communicating as quickly, clearly and concisely as possible. Using plain English, with a professional tone, is the best way to make an impact with all your writing.

Writing in Plain English means writing to ensure all readers will get your message on their first reading; it doesn’t mean dumbing down or appearing unprofessional. However, it always means avoiding unnecessary jargon, buzzwords, repetition, overly-formal language, complex sentence structures, and waffle.

This workshop provides an understanding of the importance of Plain English and how to achieve it, using examples from a variety of documents, intended for a range of audiences.
