The plain English techniques are at the heart of this course, and we'll be covering them all.

There are only a few of them and they are easy to learn. But when you put them all together ‒ and put the reader at the heart of everything you write ­‒ your writing will be transformed.

Over several lessons we'll be looking at:

• using language that is familiar to our readers
keeping our sentences short
making our writing human
writing 'actively' rather than 'passively'
using 'bullet' lists
