Plain language and clear communication

I offer two standard types of training sessions on plain language:

  • a 1-hour didactic seminar or
  • a 3-hour interactive workshop.

But I’m always happy to tailor a training session to your organization’s needs.

I’ve given plain language training to a variety of organizations, including Courthouse Libraries BC, the Women’s Health Research Institute, the City of New Westminster, SFU’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, the Comox Valley Community Health Network, Northern Health Authority, and the Vancouver Foundation.

[Note: Earliest workshop bookings available January 2025.]

I also teach these plain language courses:

Other editing and publishing training

In addition to offering training on plain language, I’ve also given seminars on these (and other!) editing- and publishing-related topics:

  • editing for accessibility
  • fact checking
  • publishing workflow and quality-assurance systems
  • style guides and house style
  • trauma-informed editing
  • user testing
