“Clarity is Key” focuses on ways to make writing clearer and more engaging to audiences.
Clarity is the heart and soul of this course, which drills down into specific ways that editors can tighten and brighten copy that will improve the reader experience and provide greater credibility for news organizations.
Clarity helps readers understand and engage with a piece of writing. When it’s easy and smooth for a reader to move through writing, they’re focused on the content. No one ever complains that something is “too clear.” Too long, too dense, too convoluted, too confusing – yes. But there’s no such thing as too clear.
This course has been newly updated in 2023. It can be taken independently or as part of the ACES Certificate in Editing.
