WPP Stream - Omit needless words

Workshops

Alongside discussions we run a series of hands on workshops, from drawing class, to weaving. All workshops are suggested and run by attendees. Sign up below to add an idea for a workshop - either something you would like to TEACH - or something you would like to LEARN. All ideas welcome and basic equipment can be provided.

Omit needless words

The simplest words are the most powerful. There's a reason Churchill said “We shall fight on the beaches” instead of “we shall offer armed resistance on the sandy national perimeter.” Yet most of us write stuffy, verbose English. It starts in school, where our teachers put a premium on the use of long words and sentences. The corporate world reinforces such writing. This workshop offers three things. 1. How to recognize stuffiness in your writing, 2. A tool that helps you de-clutter and clean your writing. 3. You learn by doing. Hands on. Participants, please bring a recent piece of your writing.
