“10 Tips for More Concise Writing” by Katherine Firth

Rather than listen to me lecture about the most common issues found in your Earthsea essays and PTI responses, please spend a moment reading over the following article. Consider bookmarking this page and using it as a checklist for your writing going forward.

Consider points 1,2,4,5,9,10 and which one of these concepts you would like to apply to your next piece of formal writing.

As an additional task, I will be asking you to name what your next writing goal is by the end of class today as a ticket out the door, as well as at least one example from your work of why you chose this goal.  

Happy writing!

– Mr. Morris
