Plain Language Book Club
Editors and writers, let’s support each other with an informal reading club. We’re still considering the best plain language subtopic for fall 2023.
In the meantime, explore the three books we read in fall of 2022 below and on my blog. These books offered a great introduction to measuring readability and writing or editing to include more readers.
How it works:
- Virtual via Zoom.
- Who should attend? The structure is nearly self-guided learning, so it will be most useful for working editors and writers who already have some familiarity with plain language.
