Clear, Accurate, Concise Writing

Most writing classes approach clarity, accuracy, conciseness through style, yet subjective arguments such as “it’s nicer” seldom convince rational minds, who wonder what, exactly, is nicer about it. Approaching effective writing from structure, not style, this lecture discusses how to construct paragraphs and phrase sentences that answer all the readers’ questions as effortlessly, as usefully, and as fast as possible for them.
