Plain Language: The Basics with Peter Moskos
Note: Editors BC will also run this seminar in Victoria later this spring in partnership with the Professional Editors’ Association of Vancouver Island (PEAVI).
According to the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS), 48 percent of adult Canadians have difficulty reading the texts necessary to their daily lives. For many of these people, as well as those of us with little time to read documents more than once, plain language is a must. This course introduces plain language. The course manual demonstrates basic plain language techniques and provides “before” and “after” examples, practical exercises and an easy-to-use checklist. The course is learner-centred and skills-based. Working in groups, you will learn by doing.
The course supplies about 90 pages of explanation, examples, exercises, suggested responses and bibliographic materials. Registration includes a $10 fee to cover the cost of photocopying.
Please note that lunch is not included in the cost of registration.
