The Writing University Podcast
Tuesday, July 25, 2023


However creative and brilliant you are, your work is evaluated (consciously or not) for its style. We write in different styles, but all writing needs correct grammar and appropriate punctuation. Good writing is characterized by the clarity and felicity of sentences. Almost everyone has "tics" that mar style, such as problems with noun/pronoun agreement, clumsy clauses, dangling participles, and unclear antecedents. Sometimes, passages sound like transcriptions of talk. What to do? Add style-review to your writing process. Know the rules, and develop self-consciousness. This session will give you models, ideas, and resources for improving your style.
