WGTD v. Writing Style Taught in Schools


Although the difference between these two examples is stark, it is by no means unusual. It is, in fact, universal in all organizations around the world. People unwittingly paragraph each other into confusion to the point where readers stop reading.

This exhibit also illustrates the difference between a pre-seminar writing sample and the writing skills taught in WGTD: framing content for busy readers and complying with the Federal and State Plain Language Guidelines mandated by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton for state, county and city governments.
