Effective Writing: Plain English at Work launching at Paperchain

Canfan 3 July 2014


Paperchain is launching Elizabeth Manning Murphy’s new book ‘Effective Writing: Plain English at Work’ Friday 11 July at 5.45pm for 6.00pm.

Effective Writing: Plain English at Work, second edition, is about writing that works: it is based on sound English grammar and plain English style. If you want to write in a way that is clear and meaningful, to avoid writing gobbledegook, and to be able to explain effective writing to others, this book is for you.

Through this book you will gain the skills needed to write cohesive paragraphs and to consider your target audience. This updated edition also considers writing emails, material for websites, and other workplace writing that wasn’t covered in the first edition.

  • How do you explain to a colleague why their writing doesn’t make sense?
  • Why does choice of font matter in a document?
  • What is appropriate use of social media in the workplace?
  • Why is white space important in an email and in a printed report?

Many such questions are answered here. You can practise writing and check your progress by doing the activities after every topic.

Where: Paperchain Manuka
When: Friday 11 July
Time: 5.45pm for 6.00pm start
RSVP: Telephone 6295 6723 or email info@paperchainbookstore.com.au
