Archived webinar: Listen to or download my “Update on Plain Writing Principles and the New Law”

by | Apr 14, 2011 | Plain Language Writing Courses, Writing Matters Blog | 0 comments

Earlier this year, I delivered a 90-minute webinar for Web Manager University entitled Write Plainly: An Update on Plain Writing Principles and the New Law. During the webinar, I discussed plain writing principles, and Kathryn Catania, PLAIN co-chair, presented information on the Plain Writing Act of 2010.

During the webinar, we covered:

  • The principles of plain language
  • How to edit content according to plain language principles
  • Where to find additional plain language training and resources
  • How the Plain Writing Act could affect government agencies’ operations

Now, you can download the webinar recording (66 MB, 90 minutes) and the presentation slides (PDF, 3 MB).

If you want to laugh yourself silly, download the transcript (PDF, 40 KB), which documents me saying things like “I think is an idiot for FAQs as part of the culture of the Web” and “Not really, but it do go to play my wish…”  Ah, you gotta love digital transcription technology!
