Concision and Precision: A Tour of Techniques for Writing Clearly Online

“Write concisely.” “Be more specific.” Awk.” “Unclear”. We've all seen comments like these at one time or another. How do you make sense of them and, more importantly, avoid them?

Come for a tour of one of the most under-appreciated Library Guides: the "Write Clearly" guide. We'll talk about how to learn from comments like the ones above, and how to tighten up your writing to avoid such pitfalls as, “Throughout history” and “There are many explanations for this.”
