Clear and Concise Writing

Get your message out there clearly and concisely, and feel good about your writing in the process! Learn to craft concise, targeted messages that provide your readers what they want and need — without overloading them with words.

Concise writing helps prevent confusion and misinterpretation too. This course will show you three strategies for writing in a way that's naturally concise from the start. That means less editing time as well.

  • Recognize the causes of wordiness in our writing  
  • Provide meaning to your readers quickly and easily
  • Use a naturally concise sentence structure
  • Avoid words and sentence structures that cause wordiness
  • Choose verbs that increase concision and reduce wordiness
  • Manage tone and concision simultaneously
