Effective Writing

Today's writing tips are for new writers searching for information. These include high school and college students preparing essays or reports, or simply those whose writing skills have become rusty. Tutors searching for additional information to pass on to their students might also find it useful. And, anyone whose native language is not English can use it as a handy guide.

Veteran writers and authors will find this of little use, unless they are mentoring writing students and are searching for additional sources.

Today's writing tips are from by Jane Straus. You will find guidance for using concrete rather than vague language, active versus passive voice, overusing specific words and phrases, and how to avoid sentence fragments.


Good Luck with your writing.
