Use the Active Voice editing:

• The subject of an active

verb acts.

• The subject of a passive

verb does not act.


Slide46 l.jpg

Avoid the Use of Qualifiers editing:

The constant use of qualifiers is

particularly debilitating; we

should all try to do a little better,

we should all be very watchful

of this rule, for it is a rather

important one and we are pretty sure

to violate it now and then.


Eliminate clutter l.jpg
Eliminate Clutter editing:

Somebody has said that words are a lot like money--the more of them you use, the less each one is worth. Right on. Go through your entire letter just as many times as it takes. Search out and annihilate all unnecessary words and sentences--even entire paragraphs. ---Malcolm Forbes

This workshop will show you how to editing:

• eliminate needless words

• substitute simple, straightforward language that has impact for convoluted phrases that weigh your piece down
