Plain English Campaign free guides

The Plain English Campaign, a private firm in England, provides a variety of free downloadable writing guides on its website.

But the two "General guides" that caught my attention are all about the major focus of the agency. They are useful, practical documents:
  • How to write in plain English (PDF, 100KB)
  • The A-Z of alternative words (PDF, 177KB)
This article is featured today in Garbl's Plain English Paragraphs--available at the Plain Language tab above and by free email subscription.

For more information on this topic, check out Garbl's Plain English Writing Guide. It describes how to improve your writing skills by using plain-English techniques:
  • Focusing on your reader and purpose
  • Organizing your ideas
  • Writing clear, effective paragraphs
  • Writing clear, simple sentences
  • Using suitable words
  • Creating an enticing design
  • Testing for clarity.
