Clarity of words

In this final module of the semester, I encourage you once again to consider your audience and the main purpose of your writing. By keeping these issues in mind, your writing will become a much more effective tool that you can use to persuade, engage, inform, and perhaps even entertain.

I encourage you to peruse these resources as they will help you think about how to revise for word-level clarity, eliminate wordiness, avoid clichés, find words that best express your ideas, and learn strategies for clarifying your writing.
